After exhausting its original supply of 10,000, Gaylord Information Systems (GIS) recently announced a reprint of its popular "Internet Surfer" poster, according to Chris Kirby, Director of New Business Development.
"Gaylord has made a tradition of offering free posters to libraries, and we've always had a great response from the industry," said Kirby. "But the demand for this poster has gone far beyond anyone's expectations. We've gone through several printings, and have given out almost all of our first 10,000 copies."
Jim English, manager of GIS's "CyberOdyssey" Internet consulting group, said he was pleased by the number of requests for the poster, which lists Internet terms an their definitions.
"The demand for this poster shows a positive trend in the marketplace," said English. "Gaylord's previous poster had MARC tags, and it was popular, too, but this poster shows a growing awareness of the Internet in the library industry, and that's very encouraging for all of us who are concerned with keeping libraries up to date."
The reprinted poster is free from GIS, but requires a $4.75 shipping and handling charge. Requests should include names, addresses and telephone numbers of the requesting parties, should be accompanied by checks made payable to "Gaylord," and should be sent to Linda Duncan at Gaylord, PO Box 4901, Syracuse, NY 13221-4901.
