GLAS (Graphical Library Automation System) is a comprehensive, Windows-based system for small to mid-sized libraries. Over 900 libraries worldwide are using GLAS to manage their collections and provide their users improved access to information.

GLAS @ccess is an easy-to-use browsing and searching tool for the World Wide Web, according to EOS International. It enables libraries to make their online public access catalogs available via the Internet. The library's catalog can then be accessed by library users via graphical Web browsers such as Netscape or Microsoft Internet Explorer.

"By providing electronic access to a library's collection, GLAS @ccess enables libraries to make their information more accessible to their users," said Scot Cheat-ham, president and CEO of EOS International. "Imagine how easy it can be to search remote catalog databases right at your desktop."

GLAS @ccess offers a number of browsable indexes, including Subject, Title, Author, Series, Subject, and Title Keywords, and other useful terms. A hit count is provided indicating the number of records available matching the Author and Subject index terms. Keyword and field searching is available for those fields currently indexed in GLAS, including Subject, Title, Author, Added Entry, Call Number. ISBN/ISSN, Publisher, and Year.

All of the data in GLAS @ccess is searched and displayed dynamically in real time. This means that users get up-to-the-minute accuracy, and library staff does not have to conduct a batch update to keep the catalog current.

GLAS @ccess' interface and setup options are user-definable. Text in the introductory screen can be tailored with such library-specific information as the name of the library and its hours of operation. A library can set up user capabilities such as the ability to view current activities, circulation status, as well as user login requirements.

Additional features found in GLAS @ccess include the ability to display cross references and reference notes in authority controlled browse indexes (Author, Subject. Added Entry browses), Online Help, and standard Windows features including drop-down menus and cut-and-paste options. …
