Mass. Library network to put catalog online

S.A.I.L.S., a Massachusetts library network that is merging two existing

networks will post its catalog online using Sirsi Corp.'s Unicorn Library

Management System for its 48 libraries.

WebCat, Alabama-based Sirsi Corp.'s World Wide Web catalog, allows library

users to access all library holdings including the reference desk.

S.A.I.L.S. used focus groups to gauge what users wanted in the library,

and many wanted a catalog they could access easily from their home, a statement

said.

The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners awarded the network funds

to purchase the system.
