Sep 20, 1995
Logos Research Systems Inc., developer of the Logos Library System authoring software and search engine for multilingual texts, has expanded its user technical support services with a Windows bulletin board system and a World Wide Web home page. This supplements existing forums on CompuServe's Christian Information Network, America Online's Christianity On-Line and telephone technical support.
The Logos Library System is the first hypertext library system for Windows to allow searches in mixed right-to-left and left-to-right texts. Logos Research has also made available Greek and Hebrew original texts and reference works on both CD-ROM and floppy disk.
The Logos bulletin board system is accessible via modem by dialing 360-675-1507. The Logos World Wide Web home page is accessible at the URL: http://islander.whidbey.net/~logos.
Separately, Logos Research has signed a contract with Banatam Doubleday Dell to produce a CD-ROM version of the six-volume, 7,200-page Anchor Bible Dictionary. This reference work will include the Logos Library System search engine.

Logos Research Systems introduces Logos Library System
Jun 20, 1995
Logos Research Systems Inc. has introduced the Logos Library System (LLS) and authoring environment for electronic books. Using the latest Unicode technology, LLS is the first library hypertext system running under Windows to allow language specific searches in a mixed environment of right-to-left and left-to-right contexts. For example, a user may search for a right-to-left Hebrew phrase embedded in a left-to-right English sentence by specifying Hebrew as the target search language. This multilingual capability makes LLS uniquely attractive to reference and textbook publishers who routinely publish multiple-language text.
A distinguishing characteristic of LLS is its library browser, which catalogues books according to normal library science conventions. The browser further serves as a delimiter for the search engine allowing users to search through a book, category of books, or the entire library collection in a single pass. By stressing the look and feel of the printed page, LLS maintains the visual text attributes of the original work including tables, graphs, charts, illustrations, and fonts.
