AVIAC formed

Library Systems Newsletter [March 1986]

COS will have a counterpart in the library automation industry: the Automation Vendor Interface Advisory Committee (AVIAC). The group is modeled on the approach used by the book jobber vendors when they developed BISAC. It will seek to focus on the development of a written set of specifications, at the application level, for the inquiries and responses necessary to exchange information among local library systems. Chairman of AVIAC is Jim Michael of Data Research. Other members of the group will be designated by CLSI, Geac, OCLC Local Systems, and VTLS. Consultant Richard W. Boss of ISCI and Director of Automation Katharina Klemperer of Dartmouth will also serve on the group.
