This paper is based on a research of online catalogues of various library systems: Koha on the example of the Library of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Zagreb, Aleph on the example of the National and University Library in Zagreb, the Zaki system of the Zagreb City Libraries and the Vero system integrated into the CROLIST catalogue. At the beginning of this paper, the basic features of the new-generation catalogue are described, followed by the descriptions and results of the two researches carried out on mentioned OPACs. The first research is based on a comparison of four library systems with regard to features of the new-generation of library catalogues. The second survey was conducted by a questionnaire on a sample of forty examinees. It examined the usability of these OPACs. The aim of this paper is to notice what characteristics of the new-generations of catalogues have these OPACs, point to their advantages and disadvantages, examine their usability and usefulness, and on the basis of the results, make suggestions for improving the catalogues.
