Notes

Abstract: Enhancing bibliographic records with contents and summary notes in the online catalog increases the findability of library resources. Does this findability lead to use? How much of a difference can enhanced records make in the usage of e-books? This presentation will report on the results of a study to determine if the inclusion of summary notes and/or table of contents notes in catalog records is associated with the usage of e-books in a large university library.
