New Generation of Library Interfaces: Meeting the needs of today’s library users
Copyright (c) 2008 Information Today
Abstract: Following a period of widespread dissatisfaction with library OPACs, a number of projects and products have emerged to provide library interfaces more capable of satisfying the needs of web-savvy library users. New models of what constitutes a library catalog are forming, and products are now beginning to embody aspects of this new vision. Breeding provides an overview of the library catalogs and interfaces now available or in development, including both commercial and open source alternatives.
