Brodart Automation Acquires Media Minder Product Line

Brodart Automation, a supplier of library automation services, has announced its acquisition of the Media Minder product line from long-standing business partner CRS, Inc. According to the company, Media Minder for Windows is a powerful, PC-based reservation and tracking system that conducts all media center operations. Media Minder's catalog and booking features make it easy for media center staff and teachers to search and reserve materials, even months in advance. Additional modules support options for staff-placed reservations, printed catalogs, and networking multiple users.

"As a business partner of CRS, Inc. for over 9 years, we have been closely involved in development, sales, and marketing of Media Minder, so this is a great move for everyone involved," said Gretchen Herman, general manager of Brodart Automation. "Brodart Automation has a distinguished history of retrospective conversion, database creation and manipulation, and library automation experience. These decades of experience with US MARC Standard and data manipulation make this product a perfect fit with Brodart Automation. We can only enhance development of the already successful Media Minder product line."
