CASPR, Inc., has announced a Windows version of its integrated library management software, LibraryWorks. The system represents a cross-platform option in the sense that users can now run the software on either PCs with Windows or Macintoshes; or it can mix and match Macintosh and Windows-based computers on a single network in a client/server environment.
LibraryWorks fully supports MARC cataloging. It includes management functions for cataloging, circulation, acquisitions and serials control. LibraryBrowser provides patron access through a graphical interface. A related product, LibraryDisc, is a series of CD-ROM databases searchable by LibraryBrowser.
Libraryworks for Windows requires an IBM or compatible computer with an 80286 or higher processor and 1 MB memory. An EGA or higher video graphics adapter and
monitor are recommended. MS-DOS 5.0 or higher, plus Microsoft Windows, 3.0 or higher and a Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device are also needed.
