heal.abstract Purpose – This paper aims to present real time user searches in a Greek academic library OPAC (University of Macedonia Library) in relation to user profile. Design/methodology/approach – Using as a test bed a Greek academic library and its OPAC’s transaction logs along with a system implanted questionnaire, data were gathered, processed and analyzed using multivariate statistical analysis techniques. Findings – In making a synthesis of the analyzed data, a series of questions related to everyday library work were answered, giving libraries a tool to apply the gained knowledge in order to make decisions regarding their OPAC, their user education programs and their reference services. Research limitations/implications – The present paper focuses on the analysis of those variables that were considered to be the most representative for constructing a user profile. Originality/value – This paper builds upon the techniques of data collection and presents a new tool for analyzing them statistically. Data derived from libraries were processed and analyzed statistically using the classical descriptive statistics. The suggested multivariate statistical method is designed to become a tool for analyzing qualitative data and to be used in a variety of library applications. It is also particularly helpful in analyzing cross-tabular data in the form of numerical frequencies and allows all associations amongst pairs of variables to be analyzed as well as each association between a variable and itself. en
