>World-Wide Review of "Guidelines for OPAC Displays"
>The Task Force on Guidelines for OPAC Displays invites your review of
>the proposed text for the "Guidelines for OPAC Displays."
>The primary purpose of producing these guidelines is to bring together
>recommendations on a corpus of good practice to assist libraries in
>designing or re-designing their OPACs.  Existing OPACs demonstrate
>differences in the range and complexity of their functional features.
>It was considered important to make recommendations on displays in
>order to work toward fulfulling recognized functions of catalogues.
>The Task Force on Guidelines for OPAC Displays was set up by the IFLA
>Division of Bibliographic Control, with the Section on Cataloguing as
>the lead Section.  The Sections on Cataloguing, Bibliography,
>Classification and Indexing, and Information Technology were
>represented with members, and commentators were appointed from a number
>of Sections and Round Tables.  The first meeting of the Task Force took
>place at the 1997 IFLA conference in Copenhagen, with a follow-up
>meeting discussing a draft of the guidelines held at the 1998 IFLA
>conference in Amsterdam.
>The draft guidelines were drawn up by Martha Yee, Consultant to the
>Task Force, with input from Task Force members and commentators.
>The draft of the guidelines are available on the IFLAnet web site at:
>The table of contents pages may temporarily be incorrect, since the
>change from Word97 to the online version changed page numbers.  It is
>anticipated this will be corrected soon.
>Please send your comments to me on or before April 30, 1999, upon which
>date the review period will be completed.  Following the review,
>comments will be considered in revision of this document, and a final
>version will be presented to the Standing Committees of the Sections on
>Bibliography, Cataloguing, Classification and Indexing, and Information
>Technology for a vote.
>Thank you in advance for your comments.  It is necessary to get a wide
>range of input, including comments from people from various cataloguing
>traditions and using various formats, in order to make the final
>guidelines meet the needs of libraries througout the world.
