Carl releases Spanish language Kid's Catalog

Library Systems Newsletter [January 1997]

CARL Corporation has released the Spanish language version of the Kid's Catalog. The product, which builds on recently introduced multi-language capabilities in the original Kid's Catalog product, was developed in partnership with the San Antonio Public Library. The vendor is prepared to workwith libraries on the development of a catalog in any language which uses the Roman character set.

The new product also has a spell-checker and provision for patron-placed holds. These capabilities will be available in all versions of Kid's Catalog beginning with version 1.6. The spell-checker is automatic, presenting an alternate spelling whenever there is no direct match. If the suggested spelling is accepted, the search is automatically reexecuted without any additional keystrokes. The patron-placed holds feature, which is optional, allows a user to activate a hold on an item from the bibliographic record screen.
