RESEARCH PARK, Inwood, West Virginia, October 27, 1997. The Library Corporation (TLC) today announced that its cutting-edge, turnkey, fully integrated library automation system—Library.Solution—has now been selected by seven additional libraries, bringing the number of contracted installations to 67.

Gary Kirk, Director, Sales & Marketing at The Library Corporation, stated, "Library.Solution is specifically designed to be a flexible, cost-efficient, yet feature–intensive solution to address all of a library's automation needs. We accomplished these ambitious goals by having a fully–integrated, client/server system that runs on low–cost, low–maintenance PCs with a user-friendly, graphical interface environment—Windows NT. The result is large system performance at small system pricing. These benefits seem to be well appreciated by the library community, as evidenced by its enthusiastic response to Library.Solution."
