 INFORMATION ACCESS ANNOUNCES NEW VERSION OF TOM DATABASES
 FOR APPLE MACINTOSH COMPUTER AT ALA -- JUNE 27-30, 1992
 FOSTER CITY, Calif., June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Access Co. in Foster City today announced at the American Library Association (ALA) conference at Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, a new version of the TOM(TM) and TOM Health & Science(TM) databases, created for the Apple Macintosh computer.
 The TOM databases provide index and full text access to some 140 magazines most frequently used for research in junior and senior high schools. A sample of these publications include: Time, Newsweek, The New Republic, Science News, BioScience and In Health.
 This new version will give users access to the same TOM periodical indexes and full text files available on the PC system. Users will be able to follow all the standard Macintosh guidelines that make the system so user-friendly.
 Macintosh users will automatically have the ease-of-use that is synonymous with the TOM databases, such as the Expanded Search feature for Boolean searches, access to 10-50 word abstracts, as well as access to the full text of articles on the CD-ROM disc.
 The Macintosh version of the TOM databases will run on any MacPlus or newer model of the Macintosh computer. Any "Macintosh compatible" CD-ROM drives and printers will work with the new software.
 "The new version of the TOM databases for the Apple Macintosh computer is a perfect marriage of technology," said Information Access Co. President Morris Goldstein. "With the incredible selection of hardware, especially Macintosh hardware in the marketplace, this product is a natural for the secondary school library staff and their students."
 "TOM and TOM Health & Science are popular resources for junior and senior high school libraries, and Macintosh is in high demand for student use," said Janet Vratny-Watts, information scientist for the Apple Library at Apple Computer Inc. in Cupertino, Calif. "The TOM databases for Macintosh make a great match, and will be much valued additions to the educational CD-ROM market."
 Information Access Co. is the world's leading supplier of periodical reference products and systems for public, academic and corporate libraries. Information Access Co. is a division of Ziff Communications.
