(Carlsbad, CA. March 27, 2000) Electronic Online Systems (EOS) International announces the release of Version 2.003 of its Q Series library information management and access system.
Q Series Version 2.003 features several special enhancements asked for by customers. These include location and date range specification controls for the Bibliographic MARC Export option and further integration of the Serials and Circulation modules. Serials reporting has been enhanced along with a system wide setup option to allow the user to define their call number hierarchy.
Also included in this Q Series maintenance release is an upgrade to Excalibur Technology's RetrievalWare 6.6, the Q Series' sophisticated search engine, and additional program updates requested by Q Series users.
"As our base of Q Series users has grown rapidly, we are encouraged at the positive remarks we have received regarding the product. We are focusing our development resources on continuing to enhance the system based on the suggestions we are now receiving. Client input comprises a vital part of this release of the Q Series as it will in future product releases," says Scot Cheatham, President and CEO of EOS International.
The Q Series is a full-featured library information management system providing sophisticated information retrieval with advanced searching options that overcome the limitations of Boolean searching. Q Series does this by providing additional tools, such as natural language querying, "hypersearching," concept searching, and pattern matching. Through these tools and other features, the Q Series provides a single point of access to the world of information. This world can include a library's own collection, a branch library's collection, multimedia files, CD-ROMs, URL links, and commercially or internally published documents found on the Internet, Intranets and Extranets.
The Q Series was nominated for the Computerworld Smithsonian Award for its innovative use of information technology and its ability to make information more manageable and accessible to users.
