The Effectiveness of the Online Card Catalog for Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Grade Students at Sailorway Middle School Library: A Survey.
Williams, Robert A.
The effectiveness of the online card catalog at Sailorway Middle School in Vermilion (Ohio) was studied. The library became fully automated in 1991. The participants were 76 sixth, 90 seventh, and 70 eighth graders (102 males and 134 females), ranging in age from 12 to 14 years. A survey determined the degree of effectiveness of the online card catalog in the opinions of the students. Participants gave high marks to the availability of the online catalog, although the degree of acceptance rose with the grade level. All student levels rated their future use of this new technology as extremely likely. Results indicate that online card catalogs are effective in the views of student patrons. Eight tables present study findings. An appendix contains the survey form. (Contains 17 references.) (Author/SLD)
