COMPanion offers libraries a free version of Alexandria!

Press Release: COMPanion Corporation [October 1, 1999]

SALT LAKE CITY, UT, October 1, 1999 -- To celebrate the end of the millennium, COMPanion Corporation, developer of Alexandria library automation systems, announced a promotion today that gives libraries a free single user version of Alexandria. This promotion represents a $2200 value.

Beginning October 1 through December 31, 1999, librarians can call COMPanion or visit their Web site to request a free single user version of Alexandria. Librarians that take advantage of the promotion also receive 60 days free technical support and a free electronic manual. This is not a demonstration version of the software. It is a fully functional license, with no limit to how long the product can be used.

COMPanion is offering this promotion to encourage librarians to discover Alexandria's fully integrated functionality and ease of use. The promotion gives libraries that aren't automated, due to a lack of funding, an opportunity to enjoy the benefits of automation at no cost. In addition, for the thousands of libraries that are not Y2K compliant or that are unhappy with their current system, the Alexandria promotion is an ideal solution.

Patrick Hansen, Vice President, COMPanion Corporation commented, We don't want to see librarians or students left behind due to lack of funding or Y2K problems at the close of the millennium. Libraries should enter the new century automated and happy. Some librarians may ask, what's the catch or what's in it for COMPanion? It's very simple. We are confident that after librarians experience the ease and power of Alexandria, they will choose Alexandria when upgrading to a networked version."

Smaller school libraries and church, volunteer or organizational libraries will benefit from this promotion. Call 800-347-6439 or 801-943-7277 for further information on the promotion or visit the Alexandria web site at
