Over the next 18 months, the CONSER (CONversion of SERials) database will S
add abstracting and indexing services information to its records. CONSER  
records will then tell 'where particular serials are abstracted or indexed"  
and provide "standardized bibliographic data" for the included A & I services. f
,This information will be available for 105,000 titles when the project is ‘
completed. (American Libraries, November 1983, pp. 681-682} ,
OSU Online Catalog User Study I 1
Christine Borgman of OCLC recently studied Ohio State University's online I
catalog use by way of computer monitoring, examining "search done, patterns .
of use, length of search sessions, error rates, and system problems." 3 _
Results showed "high numbers of subject searches at terminals in the card I ’
catalog area. . .; 13.3 percent of all commands were typographical or logical V
errors; and types of searches performed appeared highly correlated with type I
of training given to users. Length of searching sessions decreased from =_
fall to spring terms, but error rates increased during the same period."

Good building maintenance and surveys can be important ways to prevent
