In creating the ULS database, Auto-Graphics will accept and re-format records from a wide variety of local automation systems on a wide diversity of tape and disk media. After the initial database creation, individual libraries will add both bibliographic and item records on an ongoing basis.

Each participating library will have Impact/ONLINE/WebPAC(TM), an access module that allows patrons to search the database and initiate loan requests from in-library or remote systems equipped with a Web browser, according to William J. Kliss, chief operating officer Chief Operating Officer (COO)
