DataPhase systems interface to CLSI and SCI

Library Systems Newsletter [April 1982]

DataPhase Systems has announced that the Harford County (MD) Library system has conducted a successful experiment using its ALIS II installation to gain online access to the systems of other Maryland libraries.

In the experiment, Harford conducted dialup title searches on Baltimore County Public Library's CLSI system, Montgomery County Public Library's Systems Control system, and the Towson State University's CLSI system.

As a result, and in an effort to strengthen Maryland Interlibrary Loan Services, Harford County has distributed instructions for dialup access to ALIS to the Cooperating Libraries of Central Maryland (CLCM) and has provided a special password for their convenience.

Online access among Maryland systems will supplement an overworked and underfinanced interlibrary loan system. Access among systems installed by different vendors is fundamental to future interlibrary cooperation.
