Catalogue Use at the State Library of Victoria
Hider, Philip
Australian Academic & Research Libraries, v39 n1 p14-25 Mar 2008
A questionnaire survey conducted at the State Library of Victoria indicates that users in general, and not just scholars, value the standard elements of bibliographic data found in the Library's catalogues, and consider all these elements useful for finding, identifying and selecting items. Rather than making do with less, users wanted more bibliographic data, including more content details and additional elements, such as reviews. They considered all kinds of cataloguing error to be significant, but were able to differentiate between those that were likely to have most impact on their catalogue use. (Contains 9 tables and 3 notes.)
