COMPanion Corp. Extends End Date of Software Promotion

COMPanion Corp. has announced that, due to the success of its free Alexandria single-user promotion, it is extending the end date of its millennial promotion to April 1, 2000.

According to the announcement, hundreds of libraries have responded to the free single-user promotion. One district plans to automate over 20 of its elementary school libraries with Alexandria. In contrast, several small private schools are automating their libraries for the first time. Libraries that take advantage of the offer gain greater library management flexibility.

Librarians can call COMPanion or visit its Web site to request a free single-user version of Alexandria to run on either Macintosh or Windows. Participating libraries also receive 60 days of free technical support and a free electronic manual. This is not a demonstration version of the software. It is a fully functional license, with no limit to how long the product can be used.

Patrick Hansen, vice president of COMPanion Corp., said: “We have talked to so many libraries that aren’t automated due to inadequate funds, and many honestly don’t believe that they will receive a fully functioning automation system—but they do. We want as many librarians as possible to hear about the promotion. We have had a huge amount of interest and believe there are many more librarians that will benefit once they have an opportunity.”
