Other Info:From the Endeavor press release: Throughout the late 1960''s and early 1970''s Northwestern continually developed "firsts" to research library automation: first online system, first circulation system, and first online catalog with real-time circulation status. Under the leadership of former University Librarian John P. McGowan, Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Dr. James Aagaard, and former Library Systems Analyst Velma Veneziano, NOTIS (Northwestern Online Total Integrated System) became the system of choice for large academic and research libraries. In 1987, the University formed NOTIS Systems, Incorporated, a wholly owned company whose mission was to actively market the system.
