The Library-Catalog Wars: ‘Chronicle’ Readers Weigh In

Interesting debate in the Chronicle of Higher Ed regarding Library Catalogs.

Why do library catalogs leave so much to be desired?

Is it the librarians fault, the users fault or the catalogs fault?

I think the issue is much bigger than the library catalog itself and more about getting libraries to thrive in their role as “one node” of information choices (albeit with very good resources) instead of the historical mindset of the “only node” for information. We have to shed the notion that we should be at the head of the food chain when it comes to knowledge workers and knowledge work. What do you think?
