An online catalogue permits direct interrogation of the records composing a computer-held data base. Such catalogues are becoming established in housekeeping routines, as in catalogue maintenance and circulation control, but access to catalogue records for housekeeping is restricted to parts of a data base or short entries.

Scope is indicated for further development and evaluation.
