This article reports on the release of the 1991 development schedule of NOTIS Systems Inc. NOTIS Systems Inc. has unveiled its 1991 development plan of enhancements and improvements to existing products as well as some additional releases to supplement its stable offerings. Included in these will be upgrades of its library management system, KeyNOTIS, which will have location-based catalogs added on while its serials check-in abilities are being redesigned. Location-based catalog features allow users to search the online public access catalog in subsets of the entire database. The subsets could be physical, such as single library in a campuswide system, a single branch of a public library system, one library in a multilibrary consortium, or a single school library in a school district library system. NOTIS has also beefed up the abilities of its multiple database access system, which allows a user to interface with both an online public access catalog and other database files. To keep abreast of the technological advances made during the intervening years between its initial debut and the present, NOTIS will redesign its serials module in a two-phase project. Of particular importance is the inclusion of the U.S.-MARC format for Holdings and Location first introduced at several NOTIS sites at the end of last year.
