Brodart Automation, a leading supplier of library automation services, today announced its acquisition of the Media Minder product line from long standing business partner, CRS, Inc.

"Brodart Automation has a distinguished history of retrospective conversion, database creation and manipulation, and library automation experience. These decades of experience with US MARC Standard and data manipulation make this product a perfect fit with Brodart Automation. We can only enhance development of the already successful Media Minder product line."
