  2. 2. HKUST Library – Scriblio Workshop 2008 Outline <ul><li>Part I </li></ul><ul><li>Perceptions of Library & OPAC </li></ul><ul><li>How Bad Is OPAC? </li></ul><ul><li>What is a Next Generation Catalog? </li></ul><ul><li>Demo on a commercial NGC </li></ul><ul><li>Part II </li></ul><ul><li>Demo on HKUST Scriblio </li></ul><ul><li>What Do We Think? </li></ul><ul><li>Other Desirable Features </li></ul><ul><li>Q & A </li></ul>
  3. 3. HKUST Library – Scriblio Workshop 2008 For many years …… <ul><li>The Library Catalog: </li></ul><ul><li>Is the primary means of locating library’s collections. </li></ul><ul><li>Display the holdings of the library. </li></ul><ul><li>Over the last decades, the catalog’s functions have </li></ul><ul><li>evolved a lot. Now, catalogs also act as an access </li></ul><ul><li>mechanism to resources beyond the library. </li></ul>
  4. 4. HKUST Library – Scriblio Workshop 2008 Perceptions of Library & OPAC <ul><li>In 2005, OCLC conducted a study and found: </li></ul><ul><li>89% of college students uses search engine. Only 1 % use library website to begin information search. </li></ul><ul><li>Use the library less and more time spent on Internet. </li></ul><ul><li>Search engines fit users’ lifestyle better than physical or </li></ul><ul><li>online libraries. </li></ul><ul><li>90% of study respondents are with search engines. </li></ul><ul><li>Search satisfaction has a strong correlation with the </li></ul><ul><li>quality & quantity of information returned in search </li></ul><ul><li>process. </li></ul>
  5. 6. The OPAC Sucks Recorded by: the anAACRonisms the OPAC sucks, that's all i gotta say i'm getting bad results. don't act like it's my fault the OPAC sucks, a sad calamity like it's stuck in 8 million b.c. the OPAC sucks so bad that it's a crime what does it want from me? i'm stumbling blindly the OPAC sucks, people are confused it runs amok, committing its abuse the OPAC sucks, that's all i gotta say ... ( Lyrics and music: Brian Smith ) you’re outta luck if you can’t spell “Hemingway” the title that I seek is buried very deep the law is broken “save the reader’s time” years and years and years ago, computers replaced cards how come find what I want is still so goddamn hard?

  6. 7. HKUST Library – Scriblio Workshop 2008 So What’re the Problems? <ul><li>Made for librarians, not patrons. </li></ul><ul><li>Best for “known-item” searching , not topic searching. </li></ul><ul><li>No relevance ranking. </li></ul><ul><li>Most catalog search results are simply ranked last-in/first-out. </li></ul><ul><li>No cutting edge features (e.g. Blog, Wikis & RSS feeds) </li></ul><ul><li>Too much text and Boolean-based </li></ul><ul><li>More… </li></ul>
  7. 9. HKUST Library – Scriblio Workshop 2008 Characteristics of NGCs <ul><li>A Next Generation Catalog (NGC) should: </li></ul><ul><li>Provide simple search interface </li></ul><ul><li>Relevance ranking </li></ul><ul><li>Drill down through a large result list </li></ul><ul><li>Include Web 2.0 functionalities </li></ul><ul><li>Eye-catching & Feature-rich environment </li></ul>
