This paper addresses the historical and current trends of library catalogs with a focus on law firm libraries. It attempts to provide some guidance for law librarians looking to choose their next library catalog by delving into the practice of cataloging, library classification systems, and information seeking needs and behaviors of law firm library users. Library workers located in the United States employed by an international law firm were surveyed to determine their needs and wants regarding an integrated library system and to determine the strengths and weaknesses of their past and current catalogs. Through better understanding of the search behavior of this population, international deployment of the chosen personalized integrated library system may be successful.
