         OPAC 1.0
Card Catalogue – reloaded
Library centric
Static & locked
Little social interaction
Lacks modern tagging
Limited in outlook
Read only access
Low usability – not search intuitive.
Online but lacks ‘cutting edge’ features
One size must fit all – no “Me”
Catalogue as barrier not enabler

     But it has worked as a pointer for centuries
                OPAC 1.0

       OPAC 2.0
 Cutting edge …. simply user expectation?
 User centric
‘My OPAC’ – personalised
 User as content creator
 Collaboration & participation
 Read & Write access
 Embraces social interaction
 My Alerts…Reservations… Suggestions
 Friendly
 Visual - Look inside resources
 Global in outlook
         SOPAC 2.0
Socially Interactive OPAC
Bleeding Edge
Relationship centric
Moving, evolving, growing
Converging, intertwining technology & information
Decrease the notion of ‘library as a physical space’
A key part of the acquisition continuum
        Where to from here
Focus on simplicity
Add value & meaning to information, then get out the way
‘Beg, borrow or plagiarise’ ideas from other Libraries
Take risks and scare yourself – users forgive!
Web 2.0+ will impact on selection and acquisition tasks


“The OPAC is not the sun…OPAC is at best a distant planet
every year moving farther from orbit…the User is the sun”
