So Much For The OPAC

James V. Grimaldi and Jacqueline Trescott – “About one-sixth of the books, monographs and bound periodicals at the Library of Congress weren’t where they were supposed to be because of flaws in the systems for shelving and retrieving materials, according to a survey to be made public at a congressional hearing today.”

No sense in having a computerized catalog if you can’t find the books. I’ve been in the closed stacks in the LOC and it’s, unfortunately, a mess back there. I was mortified by it.
