Auto-Graphics subsidiary purchases ISM'S library services division

Library Systems Newsletter [August 1997]

A-G Canada, the Canadian subsidiary of Auto-Graphics, Inc., has purchased the Library Information Services Division of Information Systems Management, one of North America's major bibliographic utilities. The bibliographic utility may be recognized by some as the former UTLAS. The bibliographic database acquired by A-C Canada contains in excess of 57 million records and has an associated PC-based ILL system.

The major advantage of the acquisition for Auto-Graphics is strengthening its position in Canada and giving it a substantial number of academic library clients to complement its current customer base of public and school libraries. For libraries, especially U.S. libraries, it may offer an attractive alternative to OCLC, RLIN, and WLN.
