Carlsbad, CA - February 26, 1993 - In June 1992 Data Trek released a new library automation product, the School Series. The School Series provides an affordable alternative for K-12 school libraries looking for a complete and easy-to-use library automation system.

The basic School Series package includes four integrated modules: Cataloging, Circulation, Databridge (a MARC record import/export utility), and EasySearch (an online public access catalog). The School Series has three optional modules which are: School MARC Archive (a utility for storing and maintaining full-MARC records), School OPAC (a sophisticated OPAC), and School GoPAC (a graphical OPAC operating in Windows). A free sampler disk is available for IBM and IBM-compatible computers.

Data Trek created the School Series to meet the specific automation needs of school libraries and to provide school librarians with a full-featured automation system at an affordable price. Unlike other task-specific products for school libraries, the School Series combines all of the standard automation components into a complete, integrated system. The basic School Series package is priced at a low $1995. However, for a limited time, this package is being offered at the, remarkable introductory price of $1295. These prices include a full year of software support.

Designed exclusively for the school library, the School Series is extremely user-friendly with on-screen help available at both staff and student levels. Its straightforward screen design makes the software easy to learn. The School Series' pull-down Main Menu allows users to quickly switch from module to module. These and other dynamic features in the School Series software create an attractive package for any school library interested in automating.

Data Trek is a turn-key vendor, ready to meet all of your library automation needs. In addition to providing complete software solutions, Data Trek offers complete automation systems including hardware, networks, training, installation, and data conversion. Data Trek is also committed to post-installation support. A technical support hotline is available via a toll-free telephone number as evidence of Data Trek's commitment to the success of our clients.

"I am excited about working with school libraries," said Scott Alford, Western U.S. Sales, School Division. "There are lots of school libraries in need of a quality automation product at an affordable price. And I am confident that Data Trek's School Series is that product."

With over eleven years experience in library automation, Data Trek's staff of automation experts can recommend, configure, install and support a complete solution for the K-l2 library. Data Trek is committed to the School Series and all other Data Trek products. For more information on Data Trek's School Series, please call a School Division Representative at 800-876-5484.
