Do you know that approximately 8 out of 10 Filipinos 
DO NOT KNOW  what an OPAC is?
Try to ask your friends!

OPAC stands for Online Public Access Catalog. 

First of all, let us learn what a catalog is. Catalog in the Library is a list of information about the collections that a library owns. Catalog in marketing and business terms is a complete list of items typically in systematic order. Catalogs are very helpful in many kinds of organizations mainly because it serves as a directory of information listed in systematic manner. OPAC is on the other hand, an online bibliography of collections. It's an effective bibliographic tool since it contains qualitative and quantitative data.

So why is it a big factor for us to know what an OPAC is?

OPAC is like SOUP. 

OPAC is Simple.
OPAC is Useful.
