Swansea Institute of Higher Education is the fiftieth library to choose TalisWeb for making their library catalogue available to users. There are currently over thirty TalisWeb catalogues of BLCMP customer libraries available on the World Wide Web, ten more awaiting installation, and ten public libraries who have decided to install TalisWeb OPAC on local intranet networks.
At the Library Resources Exhibition in June BLCMP will be demonstrating the new frames-based TalisWeb OPAC. The design integrates with Talis Inform, which can also be frames-based, allowing users to navigate smoothly between the community information system, the library catalogue and other Web applications, using the frames menus.
TalisWeb has all the functionality of Talis OPAC, including active borrower functionality, together with the advantages of a Web interface. At Swansea Institute of Higher Education TalisWeb will be installed alongside Talis, taking the total number of BLCMP customers to 75.
