Research report on analytical review of catalog use studies by Karen Markey( Book )

4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An extensive body of library literature addresses the area of card catalog use. This review takes a critical approach in summarizing and evaluating the methods and scope of catalog use studies. Emphasis is upon the subject approach to card catalog searching. Subject access is defined herein; however, the process of subject searching, described repeatedly in library literature, has been based upon common sense understanding rather than systematic observations. The findings of the catalog use studies are classified into: (1) generalizations on the physical format of the catalog, information found on cards, catalog searchers' educational level or area of expertise, and reference assistance; (2) generalizations specific to subject searches, user characteristics, and the physical structure of the catalog; and (3) generalizations specific to the known-item searches and nonstandard information, failure at the catalog, author-title information. The major reviews of catalog use studies and their methods also are covered
