Abstract

Librarians at the Arnold Bernhard Library of Quinnipiac University were concerned with the usage levels of their electronic reference titles. They had added the titles to the library's web page, made individual records in the online catalog, and even established links between an OP AC keyword search and a search through electronic reference titles. It was still felt that the collection was underutilized. In 2007, the Automation Librarian began a project to add one more level of access to these titles - a graphic interface that simulated the process of walking into a reference room and picking out a title. A preliminary version was loaded in the Fall of2007, and early results indicate that it has found an audience.
