Library Systems Newsletter [November 1994]

Data Research Associates, Inc. (DRA) has completed its purchase of the multiLIS library automation system from Sobeco Ernst & Young. This acquisition was first mentioned in the June issue of LSN.

As part of the purchase, more than 300 multiLIS customers in the United States, Canada, South America, and Europe will now be supported by DRA and its new subsidiary, DRA Information, based in Montreal. The acquisition provides DRA additional product offerings for school (K-12) libraries and for customers who desire an automation product based on the UNIX platform.

Madeleine Balcer, former Director of the multiLIS division of Sobeco Ernst & Young, has been appointed President and Chief Executive Officer of DRA Information, which is staffed by former multiLIS employees.
