Abstract [en]

The research study focuses on the application of Soft Systems Methodology (SSM) to develop a collaborative user-centered approach within the context of organizational learning, and concludes with suggestions of further research. More specifically, it explores library users’ and academic librarians’ ideal characteristics for the library discovery and access services mediated through the Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) of the Academic Library of the School of Philosophy at Athens University in Greece. SSM’s applied theories and design processes guide the collaborative re-design of a more user-centered library information system. Recommendations discuss the efficacy of this approach, which expresses systems thinking and guides inclusive social learning, which reflect the characteristics of New Economy informatics.
