Full and short entry catalogues : library needs and uses by A. W Seal( Book )
2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 150 libraries worldwide
This report examines the performance and economics of library catalogues as affected by the level of content of their constituent records. Investigations have been carried out by the centre for catalogue research in several libraries in the UK. The experiments have based primarily on the provision of parallel files and the searching of these by panels of users. In addition, normal use has been observed. Attention has been given to the need for indiividual data elements, the usability of the catalogues and user preference. The research has concentrated on bibliographic records for monographs and the results indicate that short entry catalogues can satisfy the vast majority of user's present needs while providing substantial cost savings for the library
