CASPR, the company that last year bought the Columbia McGraw-Hill Library System, has offered the 2,700 school and public libraries now using that system a low-cost software upgrade to its LibraryWorld product.
LibraryWorld supports both Windows and Macintosh computers. The software includes acquisitions, serials control, cataloging (MARC-format), circulation, patron access catalog, and report generator.
Many of the PCs currently used with the Columbia Library System product may need to be upgraded or replaced, therefore, a library should obtain estimates for both software and hardware upgrades/replacements.
CASPR now has a total of 8,000 installations in school, special, and small public libraries. Some 2,000 of these sites are LibraryPro by Chancery Software Ltd. , a licensee of the CASPR product.
