The Online Multiple User System (TOMUS) is an integrated turnkey library system, consisting of both hardware and software. It is modular, operating on multiple microprocessors combined in a unique and efficient manner. Downtime is minimized. Performance can be optimized by positioning additional processors to support specific library functions that require additional computing capacity. Online catalog, cataloging and authority functions are currently supported. Circulation software will be released in late 1986. Other modules will follow soon.
