Catalogue Use by the Petherick Readers of the National Library of Australia
Hider, Philip
Australian Academic & Research Libraries, v38 n1 p40-60 Mar 2007
An online questionnaire survey was distributed amongst the Petherick Readers of the National Library of Australia, a user group of scholars and researchers. The survey asked questions about the readers' use and appreciation of the NLA catalogue. This group of users clearly appreciated the library catalogue and demonstrated that there are still library patrons who make extensive use of the sophisticated bibliographic access to a collection that it provides, despite the popularity of other information retrieval tools such as Web search engines. (Contains 4 notes, 2 figures and 14 tables.)
