(November 1999) - The Medical Library at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center has chosen the Unicorn Collection Management System to provide an Integrated Library Management System to replace their existing Datatrek library system.
The Unicorn system will be installed under the NT operating system on a Pentium server and will provide access via a Graphical User Interface (WorkFlows with Z39.50) to OPAC services, Cataloguing, Authority Control, Circulation and Serials Control. Access to the OPAC will also be available through the World Wide Web via WebCat.
The Medical library at Landstuhl provides US medical facilities throughout Europe with the articles, journals and other reference material required to provide first rate medical care in the performance of many worldwide military missions.
Bernadette Unger, Librarian at the Landsthul Regional Medical Center, explained that: "Unicorn was chosen for the quality of the customer service and because it is such a user friendly system."
Unicorn is distributed and supported by SIRSI, specialists in library and information systems. The software technology has been designed and developed over a 20 year period by SIRSI Corporation of Huntsville, Alabama, USA. With Unicorn installed in more than 900 sites worldwide, the company has established itself as a leading client/server library information system supplier.
