Dynix Marquis clients established in Hungary and Poland

Library Systems Newsletter [June 1994]


The German office of Dynix, Inc., has announced library clients in Hungary and Poland for Marquis, the client/server automated library system from Dynix. Funding for the purchase of the system was supplied by World Bank.

The new Dynix clients in Hungary are three large university libraries located in and around Budapest. The largest of the three, the Eotvos Lorand University, consists of 111 libraries with a total of 3.5 million volumes and more than 20,000 faculty and students. The other new Marquis clients are the Semmelweiss Medical University one main library and four networked libraries with 380,000 volumes) and the Miskolc University (one main library and sixty department reference libraries with 600,000 volumes). Installations are scheduled for completion during 1994.

The first Marquis client in Poland is the Nicholas Copernicus Library, located in Torun in northwest Poland. The library has a total of 2 million volumes.

Because of these installations, translation of the system into Hungarian and Polish has been undertaken in cooperation with the libraries. Support of the UNIMARC standard with all of its various national dialects will also be completed soon. Located in Berlin, the Dynix office has responsibility for Germany and neighboring countries in Europe, especially for libraries in Eastern Europe.
