CARL Systems Inc. has changed its name to CARL Corporation to better reflect the diverse products and services it is now offering. While its two major sources of revenue continue to be the sale and support of automated library systems and document delivery (through the UnCover Company, a partnership with The Blackwell Group), a number of other products are in general release or in development. CARL'S most recent success has been the Kid's Catalog, a GUI-based user interface which makes it possible for users to retrieve materials by clicking on colorful icons. Thirteen public library systems are using the product, including some which are using the interface with the automated library systems of other vendors. An adult version of the Kid's Catalog is being developed, with release scheduled for mid-1994.
