Data Trek, Inc. has announced a new catalog searching utility. This product, the Universal Search Module (USM) includes complete Boolean capability, rapid sorting, simple patron access, variable (including MARC) displays, and a host of other options. Though it is designed primarily to work with DTI's Catalog Module, USM can be used with any automation system catalog or data base in flat ASCII format.
As an introductory offer, DTI included USM free to anyone purchasing its Catalog Module before June 1, 1989. After June 1, the price went to $995. DTI has a free USM demo disk available upon request. This demo disk, along with its accompanying overview documentation, allows users to experiment with all of USM's powerful searching capabilities. Demo versions are available for IBM-PCs (with or without hard drive) and Digital Equipment Corporation VAX computers using the VMS operating system (version 4.7 or greater)
