I don't have the answers to Gail's questions, but the posting reminded me
of something I wanted to post.  We have the CD-ROM version of Sirs in all
of our high schools & everyone loves it.  In the spring I learned that
Sirs is developing a jr. high/middle school product.  I was really
excited until I discovered that the first version would be for a MAC
standalone.  I tried to convince a "voice" on the 800 number that most
libraries could not afford to subscribe to a product that costly which
could only be accessed from one station.  She said a networkable, DOS
version was planned for "later."  Does anyone have more current info on
this?  If you are going to ALA, please see what you can find out from the
SIRS people.  Thanks
