Abstract

If you are a religious reader of this column, then you know that I do not write all the articles. No, that would be just too boring. So to add “spice” to the column I often entertain the works of guest columnists. Actually, the reason for including guest columnists has less to do with “spice” than it does with general interest. When I receive articles from column readers, it gives me insight into their professional experiences, and in turn I share what I have learned with you.

Abstract

Before introducing the guest columnists for this issue, I want to remind you that one purpose of this column is to provide librarians with a forum whereby they can address the topic of using OCLC for public services. That's why I make use of guest columnists rather than writing all the columns myself.

Abstract

I decided to interview Tarn Dalrymple after reading comments she made about an article intended for the Public Services column. I noticed her protective approach to OCLC services. I could tell that she really feels strongly about OCLC and their references services. But the obvious plus for interviewing Tarn is the opportunity to get an inside perspective of references services at OCLC. During the interview, I asked questions about the past, present, and future of OCLC Reference Service products, along with some miscellaneous items just for fun and interest. Here is what she said.

Abstract

Discusses the introduction of EPIC as an opportunity to use OCLC as more than a verification tool. Considers the methods and problems of searching through EPIC by subject. Concludes that keyword subject searching as it exists in EPIC is a complement to traditional subject heading searching, but is not by itself enough to search such a large and complex database.
