SAN JOSE, CA, Spring, 1999 CASPR Library Systems, Inc., announced that a Y2K compliant version of the circulation module in the Columbia Library System (CLS) will be shipped to all customers who are current on their maintenance. CLS is a popular DOS based library automation system, which CASPR purchased from The McGraw-Hill companies in 1997.

"When we purchased the Columbia Library System from The McGraw-Hill Companies, we made a commitment to continue to support the product and we have done so," said Norman Kline, President and CEO of CASPR. "We have fixed bugs and made the product Y2K compliant for customers who still wish to us it and we have provided an easy and inexpensive method to upgrade from CLS to CASPR's LibraryWorld Windows based library system." 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 in 1986. Later, in 1992, CASPR was the first to create a fully cross-platform system for both Macintosh and Windows computers. Today, its 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. In addition, CASPR's LibraryCom Hosting and Directory service provides a means to publish your library online by outsourcing the work at a fraction of the cost of building your own Web site.
