English abstract

Internet development has driven the implementation of OPACs in that environment. Changes of these new OPACs as referred to catalog structure, management, and maintenance, retrieval systems and user interface are analyzed. The survival of traditional practices in the information structure and organization avoids them to be considered an innovative tool. The database structure is studied as well as the traditional principles that govern their elaboration. Effects of keeping using rules and formats designed for a manual environment, which is absolutely different from the present day technological environment are analyzed.

Spanish abstract

El desarrollo de Internet ha impulsado la implementación de OPACs en este entorno. Se analizan los cambios que estos nuevos OPACs suponen en cuanto a: estructura, gestión y mantenimiento del catálogo; sistemas de recuperación e interfaz del usuario. La pervivencia de prácticas tradicionales en la estructura y organización de la información impide que se les considere una herramienta innovadora. Se estudia la estructura de la base de datos, así como los principios tradicionales que rigen su elaboración. Se analizan las repercusiones que lleva consigo seguir utilizando reglas y formatos diseñados para un entorno manual que nada tiene que ver con el nuevo entorno tecnológico en el que hoy en día nos movemos.
