Carlsbad, CA - January 21, 1993 - Data Trek's latest version of Invoice on Diskette (IOD) now includes an interface option with Dawson Subscription Service of Mount Morris, Illinois.
Inclusion of the Dawson interface allows users of IOD to upload information from vendor serials subscription information diskettes and compare it to material already present in Data Trek's Manager Series Serials or Acquisitions modules. IOD allows librarians to update their existing Dawson serials titles, add new ones, track new or back orders, establish histories for Serials and Acquisitions data, and update subscription payment information automatically. Librarians who wish to do this need IOD and Manager Series Serials or Acquisitions from Data Trek, and an invoice information diskette from Dawson.
IOD also allows librarians to retrospectively load serials information from their Dawson subscription data when they are initially automating their serials collection. For this, librarians need the same software from Data Trek and a data conversion disk from Dawson. IOD also prints reports (including changes in pricing, new titles acquired, and changes from the vendor) based on comparisons it makes against existing serials files.
Data Trek's IOD also supports similar interfaces with Majors, Ebsco, Faxon, Readmore, and Information Store. The IOD utility, which includes all interfaces, is available for $200.00 from Data Trek. For more information please contact a Data Trek Account representative,. 800-876-5484.
