ISX/CIRC was developed as a library circulation package
for the DOS version of Unesco's CDS/ISIS retrieval system. ISX/CIRC allows small libraries
and documentation centres using CDS/ISIS to control the loan and return
of books, documents or files -- in short, any kind of material that
can be borrowed.
ISX/CIRC was originally developed in the early 1990's and has
been used in over 35 countries throughout
the world. However it does not meet the requirements of all
libraries, particularly those with more sophisticated requirements.
It is for use with the DOS Version of CDS/ISIS only; there is
no version of ISX/CIRC for the Windows version of CDS/ISIS,
due to the limited programming capabilities of the Windows version.
Year 2000 Compliance

(version 1 to version 3.19) which were not Year 2000 compliant can
