(Carlsbad, CA - April 8, 2004) Market leader EOS International, responding to overwhelming requests from our GLAS clients and other special libraries, announces the immediate availability of EOS.Web(tm) Express, a new entry-level, economical member of the EOS.Web integrated library automation solution product family. EOS.Web Express is a comprehensive Web-based ILS solution for small to mid-sized special libraries, built on Microsoft .NET technology, the SQL relational database, and the award-winning Convera RetrievalWare search engine.
EOS.Web Express is a scalable, modular system guaranteed to provide the flexibility and capacity your library needs today, which can be easily upgraded to EOS.Web Enterprise in the future, due to its n-tier architecture. EOS.Web Enterprise is a full-featured Web-based ILS that contains all of the functionality large libraries, such as our EOS Q-Series® clients, require. In particular, EOS.Web Enterprise uniquely simplifies management of materials not suited for typical bibliographic records.
Software modules included in the EOS.Web Express package are: Cataloging, Circulation, Serials, Acquisitions, Web OPAC, and Z39.50. These Web-based core applications are accessible using low-cost, browser-enabled workstations, enabling librarians to perform backoffice tasks such as cataloging, from anywhere.
"EOS.Web Express offers an intuitive user interface that not only provides users with improved access to information, but also simplifies internal cataloging workflows for backoffice staff," states Tony Saadat, CEO of EOS International. "It provides an entry-level solution for libraries to restructure operations easily and economically in order to accommodate the changing needs of an Internet-based generation of users."
Designed by librarians for librarians, EOS.Web Express is built on industry standards such as full MARC 21 bibliographic support and authority control, and features your choice of delivery options. EOS.Web Express can be installed as a local, in-house, Web-based solution running on an organization's local network server or hosted at the EOS e-Library Service(tm) global data center, enabling libraries to reduce costs and increase productivity.
