Cross platform pricing for Mac and Windows library systems: libraries can now use either Macintosh or Windows computers to automate their libraries at the same low price

Press Release: CASPR, Inc. [Fall 1999]

BIRMINGHAM, AL, FALL, 1999 American Association of School Librarians -- CASPR Library Systems, Inc., announced a reduction in the price and complexity of automating libraries using mixed computer environments with an all-in-one cross-platform pricing for LibraryWorld Bronze, Silver and Gold. When purchasing CASPR's leading library automation product, each customer will receive software that runs on both Macintosh and Windows computers, making it unnecessary to purchase separate products.

"The key to this announcement," said Norman Kline, President and CEO of CASPR "is that libraries will no longer have to worry about what computers they have on hand to automate or extend their library operations. An important factor is that LibraryWorld is truly a cross-platform program from the user interface to the source code and right down to the database. LibraryWorld looks, feels and works exactly the same on both Macintosh and Windows computers. Even the database can be copied from one type of computer to another without any conversion. Now libraries can easily mix computer systems and file servers, thus optimizing their choices, easing worries, and saving some money" continued Kline.

CASPR is a leading supplier of library automation software and services for over 10,000 school, business, college and public libraries. Located in San Jose, California, CASPR began by developing the first integrated library system for Macintosh computers back in 1986. Later, in 1992, CASPR was the first to create a fully cross-platform system for both Macintosh and Windows computers. Today, LibraryWorld desktop solutions represent the cutting edge in library automation for thousands of library centers. CASPR's LibraryNet Web program allows libraries to easily publish their own library collection using their own Web Servers and CASPR's LibraryCom Web Directory service is the first dedicated library hosting and directory service for libraries. Libraries can be published on the Web for as little as a dollar a day.
