Online catalogs : what users and librarians want : an OCLC report ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
An end user's expectations and work practices on the Web influence his or her decision to use a library online catalog. Catalog interfaces matter, but catalog data quality is also a driving factor of the catalog's perceived utility-and not only for end users, but also for librarians and library staff. To gain a rounded, evidence-based understanding of what constitutes "quality" in catalog data, OCLC formed a research team to: Identify and compare the data quality expectations of catalog end users and librarians. Compare the catalog data quality expectations of types of librarians. Recommend catalog data quality priorities, taking into account the perspectives of both end users and librarians. Readers who are seeking to defi ne requirements for improved catalog data (exposed in both end-user and staff interfaces) may fi nd this report helpful as a source of ideas. The same is true for readers who have a part to play in contributing, ingesting, syndicating, synchronizing or linking data from multiple sources in next-generation library catalogs and integrated library systems. Selected key research findings: The end user's experience of the delivery of wanted items is as important, if not more important, than his or her discovery experience. End users rely on and expect enhanced content including summaries/abstracts and tables of contents. An advanced search option (supporting fielded searching) and facets help end users refine searches, navigate, browse and manage large result sets. Important differences exist between the catalog data quality priorities of end users and those who work in libraries
