ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to investigate the major features of Next Generation Library Catalogs. ‘Next Generation Melvyl Pilot’ of University of California Library System and ‘SearchWorks’ of Stanford University Library are examined. While the former is developed, based on OCLC WorldCat Local, the latter is based on the Blacklight, an Open Source Catalog Software. Both commonly provide the features, including enriched contents, facet navigation, keyword searching, relevancy ranking of search results, and user contribution, etc., but some functions vary in scopes and contents. Also, it seems that both are in process of development rather than complete implementations.
