TITLE: CONDOC (Consortium to Develop an Online Catalog). Request for Proposal for an Online Catalog
DESCRIPTION: As vendors begin to offer client-server architecture and other improvements to online catalogs, it seems appropriate to take a look at what features were desired in second-generation systems.

ALA Midwinter conference CONDOC distributed a survey to its members. Respondents ranked 40 features of an online catalog. The results were incorporated (as appendix A) in this document.
