Brodart claims the world's largest CD-ROM-based patron access catalog installation with the addition of 355 LePac units at Los Angeles County Public Library, bringing the total installation to 445 units. The new catalog replaces a COM (computer-output-microform) catalog, which Brodart also had provided.
Brodart also is seeking to introduce LePac to the international market. It has signed a software licensing agreement for Jouve, SA of Paris to handle distribution and production of the CD-ROM public access catalog in &rope, Africa, and parts of the Middle East. As of June, 1989, Brodart Automation is headquartered in Williamsport, PA.
