Gaylord Bros. President Ron Beckman today announced that the Graphical GALAXY K-12 integrated automation solution from Gaylord Information Systems (GIS) had received the "Awards Portfolio Seal" from Media & Methods, a journal devoted to technology in schools.

"Receiving this award is a true pleasure," said Beckman, "because it represents the public recognition of something we at Gaylord have always known: Gaylord sees the school marketplace as more than a buyer-seller relationship; we see it as a partnership in the education of children, and a partnership in which we have always taken great pride."

Chris Kirby, Director of New Business Development for GIS, discussed the practical implications of the award: "The stated goal of the contest is to 'recognize and feature outstanding instructional materials and service,' so being chosen as a contest winner means being recognized by a respected industry leader. Anyone can makes claims about their own products, but it's something entirely different to have an outside source evaluate a company's product as 'outstanding.'"

According to the entry form for the Awards Portfolio contest, the awards "honor the commitment and creativity of the producers, manufacturers and suppliers who are making a significant contribution to excellence in K-12 education nationwide."

In addition to offering its "Graphical-GALAXY K-12" product in the school marketplace, Gaylord Information Systems provides automated library systems with complete modules for networking, acquisitions, serials control, cataloging, online public access, circulation control and journal citations.
