Huntsville, Alabama - SIRSI Corporation is pleased to announce that the installation of its Scientific And Technical Information Library Automation System (STILAS) at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is complete.
In addition to the bibliographic and inventory control module, the SEC has licensed the acquisitions, authority control, circulation control, enhanced public access, and serials control modules. The software is installed on an IBM System/6000 Model 970 host computer. Jane Sessa, Library Director, feels that STILAS best meets the SEC's need for a fully integrated system. Sessa said, "We were especially impressed with the serials control module. We have over 800 unique periodicals which are heavily circulated. Other systems did not actually allow you to circulate serials."
Located in Washington, D. C., the Securities and Exchange Commission was established in 1934 for the purpose of regulating the securities industry. The library manages a unique collection of securities laws and regulations which is primarily used by lawyers and accountants.
Founded by information and computer professionals in 1979, SIRSI Corporation, based in Huntsville, Alabama, is one of the world's leading suppliers of information automation. SIRSI's multiuser UNIX-based systems offer modules to automate all aspects of information management. SIRSI systems are installed worldwide in academic, public, law, medical, government, and corporate environments.
