CARL Systems, Inc., and Blackwell North America have announced an agreement to develop a series of systems interfaces throughout 1992. Using the Internet communication network, a number of innovative Blackwell services will be made accessible through the CARL System and Network. These services will include:
- access to Blackwell's NTO (New Titles Online) data base enriched with abstracts and tables of contents;
- electronic ordering of materials from both Blackwell North America and B.H. Blackwell Ltd.;
- electronic distribution of LC MARC cataloging enhanced with tables of contents and processed through Black well authority control; and
- an interface with the CARL System Authority Control Module providing Blackwell' s retrospective processing, a current and ongoing service providing immediate updating of new records and a notification service that will maintain CARL System files in constant accordance with the most current practice of the Library of Congress.
