Competency #6: Successive Fractions, Academic Search Complete

Search Question: How has technology changed cataloging?

A. Search using a broad facet: Academic Libraries
B. Narrow by adding second facet: Cataloging and Technical Services
C. Narrow by adding third facet: technology
D. Combine with Boolean logic: (academic libraries) and (cataloging or technical services) and (technology)

Total Hits: 49

First hit:

1. Add Reinventing the OPAC. By: Eden, Brad. Library Technology Reports, Nov/Dec2007, Vol. 43 Issue 6, p13-40, 28p; (AN 27425402)

Reflection: I like using Academic Search Complete. This was a great search giving me lots of useful items to look at. 49 hits is not too many, however, I could limit to academic journals and have 38 items from which to choose.
