STILAS will be installed on an IBM RISC System/6000 Model 340 host computer. In addition to the bibliographic and inventory control module, Phillips has licensed the acquisitions module, circulation module, enhanced public access module, serials control module, enhanced researchers access, multiuser gateway, and Sirsi's intelligent interfaces to DIALOG, DROLS, OCLC EPIC, and STILAS.
