Auto-Graphics, Inc. has announced that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has signed an agreement to implement Auto-Graphics' AGent Portal and Library Automation (formerly VERSO) modules. The FDA purchased the AGent Portal for its broadcast searching capabilities. The FDA's main library and each of its three branches will be using the AGent Library Automation module in an effort to combine resources and expand access to information for their library users.
AGent is Auto-Graphics' library management system that is designed to provide messaging transactions for resource sharing and document delivery. Modular by design, AGent provides various levels of infrastructure based on the client's current system architecture and anticipated future needs. AGent Library Automation is the MARC-based circulation, serials and acquisitions module of AGent. Auto-Graphics provides resource sharing and portal software services to clients who create, manage, publish, and access information using the Internet.
