CASPR introduces service bureau on the Web

Library Systems Newsletter [July 2000]

CASPR, a major vendor of PC-based systems for small libraries, has introduced a product called librarycom.com, which offers access to library applications software over the Web. The modules currently available are MARC cataloging, circulation, patron management, and reports. Other modules are in development.

You can log on and register online; enter policies, patron names, addresses, and other information; and begin creating a database. You can access a MARC database or import records from another source. Circulation can begin after you begin a database.

Special and school libraries are the target markets. Pricing is based on the number of “seats,” or users, with the first “seat” free and each additional one at $50 per year. Although the out-of-pocket cost is small, creating the database may be time-consuming.
