Brodart withdraws interactive access systems

Library Systems Newsletter [April 1987]

BRODART, the well known supplier of library products and related services, has announced the withdrawal of three products from further marketing. The products which no longer will be made available are: Interactive Access System (IAS) circulation control timeshare services; licensing or sale of the IAS software, which heretofore had been the basis of BRODART's turnkey automated library system; and all IBM 9370 and 4300 computers, the hardware on which the IAS system operated. Existing BRODART customers of these products and services will continue to be supported according to existing agreements or will be offered other arrangements as may be appropriate to their circumstances, according to the vendor. The nature of the continued support and alternative arrangements were not specified by the vendor. BRODART also announced that customers and prospects who may be in the process of considering or acquiring these products or services will be offered specific transitional arrangements to allow them to seek other suppliers. Again, no suggestion of the nature of such arrangements was announced.
