(Carlsbad, CA - February 9, 2000) - Electronic Online Systems (EOS) International is pleased to announce that it recently awarded the EOS International Excellence in Library Automation Award to Alicia Campbell, Chief of Special Services for County of Orange's Public Facilities & Resources Department (PFRD) in Santa Ana, CA, USA.

"With this award, EOS proudly recognizes Alicia's steadfast dedication to automating her library and improving staff productivity by enabling remote access to the Department's library information," says Scot Cheatham, President and CEO of EOS International.

An EOS client for ten years, the County of Orange PFRD library upgraded to GLAS, the Windows-based Graphical Library Automation System, in 1997. They are currently using the GLAS Cataloging, Circulation, Acquisitions and GLAS @ccess Web OPAC modules.

Alicia Campbell cites remote searchability, operational system compatibility, and state of the art technology as the main benefits in using GLAS. She states, "GLAS is nicely streamlined and easy-to-use for our small library. Cataloging and searching are easy-to-use for all involved."

Located in Santa Ana, California, USA, the County of Orange PFRD's library is an internal technical library for the various Orange county functions of flood control, transportation, geomatics, environmental issues, harbors, beaches and parks, and planning. The library was organized in 1975 from several individual county department libraries and consists of over 9,000 items including books, videos and pamphlets.

GLAS is a comprehensive, library information system for small to mid-sized libraries. It features an easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) and flexible data entry screens designed to streamline workflow and provide easy access to all of your library information. GLAS provides several options for searching your online catalog including: EasySearch for quick and simple searches, GoPAC (Graphical OPAC) for more advanced searches and GLAS @ccess (a Web OPAC), which enables libraries to make their online catalogs accessible via the Web. GLAS provides full MARC (MAchine Readable Cataloging) support for the bibliographic record. It also fully supports Windows standards such as multi-tasking, scrollable windows, pull-down menus, picklists, and MicroHelp. The complete GLAS user manual is also available online providing Help via keyword searching and hypertext links.
