  2. 2. Next Generation Library Catalogs“next generation catalogs” vs. “legacy catalogs”<br />Problems with legacy catalogs<br />- complex interfaces, not intuitive.<br />- inconsistent with user conventions.<br />- too limited in scope.<br />- no online content.<br />- no social networking<br />- no relevancy ranking<br />- ILS<br />
