(Carlsbad, CA -- November 10, 2004) Market leader EOS International announces that several VA Medical Centers have recently selected EOS.Web as their Web-based, medical library automation and knowledge management solution of choice. VA medical centers provide a broad spectrum of medical, surgical, and rehabilitative care for their customers. Their mission is to serve the needs of America's veterans by providing primary care, specialized care, and related medical services, such as medical research geared toward veterans' health care.
To accomplish that mission, VA medical centers in Ann Arbor, MI; Battle Creek, MI; Indianapolis, IN; Marion, IN; Phoenix, AZ; Pittsburgh, PA; and Spokane, WA have all determined that EOS.Web will help them provide extended medical research service to their customers, complete with Section 508 compliancy.
Expanded research opportunities are made possible using the EOS.Web Z39.50 searching capabilities, which enable VA medical center information professionals to directly search any Z39.50 enabled VA medical collection, in addition to searching other Z39.50 compliant databases, using a single query.
The EOS.Web solution also enables direct access to the VA Library Network (VALNET), the National Library of Medicine (NLM), local universities or research centers. Once the library has accessed one of those resources, library staff can easily import MAchine Readable Cataloging (MARC) bibliographic records into their local database using the EOS.Web MARC Editor, thus simplifying cataloging operations.
"I'm pleased to see so many VA Medical Centers recognize that EOS.Web can help to expand research capabilities," states Salvatore Provenza, Director of Sales and Marketing for EOS International. "Plus, when used in conjunction with our cost-effective EOS e-Library ServiceTM, many medical libraries have experienced an improvement in library operations, while reducing costs."
All EOS.Web clients choose between installing EOS.Web locally on their own server, or they can have EOS International host their EOS.Web solution at the EOS Global Data Center for a low annual fee.
