Our Mission
To focus on the use of catalogs and related emerging technologies in reference services, including: monitoring significant continuities and changes; identifying and examining critical issues; and providing a forum for discussion of innovation.

Five things you should know about the Catalog Use Committee
Consistent with its charge, the Catalog Use Committee:

  • Examines issues related to discovery and access in the library catalog (broadly defined).
  • Explores emerging technologies within the context of reference services, tracking those trends most likely to be adapted by libraries and be of benefit to users, such as mobile access.
  • Is concerned with maintaining the integrity of library catalogs for users in light of rapid changes in technology, promoting ease of use during transition, and assessing the gains and losses change brings.
  • Promotes the critical appraisal of library technology (what works, what doesn't), and the responsibility reference staff have in teaching the public how to use library systems.
  • Provides and supports opportunities to showcase innovations. The committee develops programs and discussions on these issues, and co-sponsors events developed by other ALA groups.
