Open WorldCat : meeting the user
where the user is
Find in a Library
84% use search engines to begin information search
Only 1% begin an information search on a library web site
Search engines use achieves high satisfaction rates
People trust what they find on search engines
Search engines are a better ‘life style’ fit than physical libraries
‘Self serve’ is a growing trend
findings from “Perceptions of Libraries and Information Resources :18a
report to the OCLC Membership” OCLC, 2005
