Faceted Searching Solutions

The Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS) offered a forum series at the ALA Annual Conference in Anaheim.  One was sponsored by the ALCTS Catalog Form and Function Interest Group entitled “Old Records, New Records, New Interfaces.”  Three librarians, Charley Pennell, Mary Charles Lasater, and Cheryl Gowing, presented their experiences from their online catalog redesign projects.  Links to the powerpoint presentations are below:
