Data General offers new MV

Library Systems Newsletter [September 1987]

Data General has introduced a new entry-level 32 bit CPU (central processing unit) to its MV family. The machine is designed to bridge the gap between micros and minis. While designed to support up to eight users, it will probably support only four or five in library automation applications. Nevertheless, at a price of under $10,000, it has considerable potential for small libraries that want to be free of the limitations of a PC environment. OCLC, the major vendor of DG-based automated library systems, has not yet announced its plans with regard to the new processor.
