Copyright (c) 1997 American Library Association

Abstract: Ex Libris Lts., the Israeli company which sells the Aleph 500 automated library systems and supports several earlier generations of that system, has purchased DABIS of Germany and DABIS of Austria, a former leading vendor of automated library systems in the German speaking countries. DABIS had gone into receivership, primarily because of failure to sell new systems. ExL GmbH, a new Ex Libris subsidiary, will service the 300 DABIS accounts and will seek to migrate them to its product. It has hired 26 former DABIS staffers and will maintain offices in Hamburg, Berlin, and Cologne.
