Abstract

The Optical Disk Pilot System (ODPS) operates as an ongoing project of the Library of Congress, storing the full text of journal articles and other materials on optical disks and providing these materials to users via terminals located throughout the Library. Since the system was introduced to the public in early 1986, usage has been monitored through the automatic collection of transaction information and the administration of an online questionnaire. Analyses of system use have been performed. This paper looks at the analysis results in terms of initial reactions to the ODPS system and user assessments of the long term potential of the system.
