That will be available in the begining of Q2. (13/2/04)

Our site is Open URL compatible so you can use SFX. (13/2/04)

Co-Branding.  Yes, with each of our products we're able to co-brand with the library or library consortium.  If there is a logo/emblem that you would like to place on the webpage, we can do that.  If you have a file you can send me I'll get it included. Kevin Steiner 15/1/04
