Abstract

This study is to determine whether color, icon, sorting methods of brief description about materials, and positioning methods of final records affect the usability of the OPAC (Online Public Access Catalog) screen designs in terms of success rate, search time, and users' preferences. The findings suggest that OPAC systems can be optimized to enhance user's performances conflict with each other, designers should give more weight to performance because of the library's mission of meeting users' information needs.
