           _New Age OPACs: Innovative Public Access Systems_

   After a hiatus of two (2) years, I will be reliving [:-)] one of my
   early Web obsessions devoted to innovative online public access
   catalogs. As many of you know, back in the late 1990s, I established a
   clearinghouse focused on Innovative Public Access Systems called Onion

        [ ]

   Over the course of the next few months, I will be reviewing and
   updating Onion Patch(sm) and am interested in identifying and
   incorporating additional novel/ingenious OPACs that are not presently

   I am also interested in any relevant articles, reports, papers,
   Websites, and other publications for inclusion in the associated

   As, Always, Any and All contributions, suggestions, comments, queries,
critiques, concerns, Cosmic Insights, or Resignations are Most Welcome!
