Mandarin Library Automation has announced the release of Oasis, its new Web-based centralized library management software system. Oasis is a seamless upgrade from Mandarin M3, Mandarin's award-winning, Windows-based automation system that is now offered as a free download. (See Mandarin Library Automation Announces Mandarin M3 Software Available as Free Download.)
Oasis supports Unicode, a universal encoding standard that simplifies the sharing of multilingual text. This allows libraries to display their collections and the Oasis interface in Hebrew, Arabic, Greek, Armenian, Chinese, and virtually any other language, according to the announcement.
Oasis helps single sites and districts lower their costs and save time with one-point installation, maintenance and updates. Optional add-on modules include Authority Control, SIF Agent (for Schools Interoperability Framework compliance), PACPortal, Syndetic Solutions, Union Catalog and Z39.50 integration.
