CMBLS: Catalog of Microcomputer Based Library Software. Second Edition.
Miller, Bruce, Comp.
This catalog is a reference guide to microcomputer-based library software. It is noted that a CMBLS listing does not constitute a recommendation, as recommendations are not the policy of the FEDLINK (Federal Library and Information Network) Library Automation Resource Service, and that the catalog errs on the side of overinclusion to give the individual user many packages to explore on his/her own. Software is listed alphabetically under broad headings that indicate specific areas of application: (1) Acquisitions; (2) Cataloging; (3) Circulation; (4) Interlibrary Loan; and (5) Serials Control. Multifunction software packages are listed separately under each function they are designed to perform. Library systems claiming to be integrated are listed under Integrated Library Systems as well as under each function they are designed to perform. Each entry includes the software publisher, name and version of the software package, date of its publication, address and telephone number of the publisher, and a brief description with a price listing. Instructions are given for submitting additions to the list or corrections to items in this catalog, which is produced from a regularly updated database. A directory of publishers and a subject index are provided. (SD)
