An online library catalogue

Abstract

This paper starts with a description of a project to introduce automation in the libraries of the National Institute for Cancer Research and the Clinical and Experimental Oncology Institute of the University of Genoa. It then describes the information retrieval software chosen to manage various library functions, in particular the book catalogue. Use of this system led to new working methods for library staff and for the users. The users’ interest in the new system has been evaluated by attendance of specific training courses and by the number of accesses to the online catalogue. Preliminary results show that this interest exists, and that adequate information can improve the library user's approach to the automated catalogue and make it a part of the user's routine work.
