DRA, a major vendor of automated library systems, has become a national ISP (Internet Service Provider), with its focus on libraries and other information providers. There now are four geographically dispersed POPs (Points of Presence) in St. Louis, Chicago, Santa Clara (CA) and Washington (DC). Each connects to DRAs high-speed (45Mbps) ATM backbone.
Among the major libraries using DPA as its ISP is the Library of Congress. It has a 10Mbps fiber optic loop to DRA's Washington POP.
