Card Datalog adds acquisitions capabilities

Library Systems Newsletter [October 1982]

DTI Data Trek of Encinitas, CA, has added an acquisitions module to its Card Datalog system. The new subsystem automates publication ordering, statistics, invoice tracking and processing, and collection maintenance. The subsystem also generates monthly and annual reports of all titles received and prints purchase orders and follow-up letters to publishers. The acquisitions software is priced at $2,000 and can be integrated with other Card Datalog subsystems-circulation, catalog, serials and lab notebook. Card Datalog is now installed in six libraries and more orders are on-hand. Depending on the equipment configuration, the system will support collections of from 5,000 to 55,000 volumes. It does not accommodate the MARC format and record size is limited to 1,000 characters.

The software, which runs under DEC's CP/M or MP/M operating systems, is suitable for a range of microcomputers from Apples to a Molecular capable of supporting 32 terminals. DTI will supply either the software or an appropriate package of hardware and software.

Total system prices begin as low as $6,990 for an Altos micro with dual floppies, a CRT terminal, printer, data base management software and one Card Datalog software module. Additional modules cost $2,000 each. Software maintenance is available for $500 per module per year.
