Hello Fellow CaMMS-Research and Publications Committee Members,

I am, Nadine Ellero, the new chair of this Committee.  I am new to this Connect Discussion and I thought what better way, than to dive in and touch base with all of you through this communication vehicle. This way, hopefully, we can all get our feet wet, re-wet, whatever your situation may be.

How are online catalogs used? What information is sought by different levels of users? How well do OPACs support catalog functions? What role should usability studies play in the decision-making process? What improvements can be made in response to the findings of a catalog usability study? This program invites researchers from various types of libraries, who have employed catalog usability and user studies findings to improve their catalogs, to share their experiences.
