Abstract: Biblionix announced the addition of the Related Cards feature to its Automation system. Related Cards allows the librarian to link individual cards per library policy and/or a family's desires. This feature provides the best of both worlds between family and individual library cards.


Austin, Texas - June 14, 2007 - Biblionix today announced the addition of the Related Cards feature to its Apollo Automation system. Biblionix, devoted solely to small- and medium-sized public libraries, continues to deliver the functionality requested by its customers. Related Cards allows the librarian to link individual cards per library policy and/or a family's desires. This provides the best of both worlds between family and individual library cards.

"We are going to LOVE this feature," said Sandy Schultz of the Liberty Hill Public Library, in Liberty Hill, Texas. "Thank you so much for all you do to make our lives easier."

Problems or fines associated with one individual are reflected on the others in the family group, so the problem/fine can be addressed or paid by anyone in the group. However, the record remains associated with the individual who was responsible for the problem or fine. This allows flexibility in managing the issue, such as deferring a payment.

Effective immediately, all Apollo customers can access Related Cards with no action on their part. This is due to Apollo's hosted, or Software-as-a-Service model. Access to Apollo is provided over the Internet with only a browser. No server or installed software is required in the library. Apollo is hosted at a top-tier datacenter with extensive data security, generators, hacker protection, fire protection, and redundant Internet connections. Backups are performed every night to a different location and every library transaction is mirrored to virtually eliminate data loss.
