Card Catalog Study at Vigo County Public Library.
McDonough, Irene Roberts
The Vigo County Public Library studied patron use of the card catalog by reviewing nearly 300 questionnaires completed by student and adult users. The results indicate that the catalog is used equally to find author, title, and subject -- with the latter a bit more prevalent. Most users did not find the filing difficult, and preferred use of the catalog to browsing or asking the librarian for assistance. Fifty-one percent found the information in the catalog adequate, and 76% use the "see" and "see also" references. Tabulated responses and tables of percentages based on the results of the questionnaire are included in this report. (SJ)
