INMAGIC Plus is a microcomputer- based software package designed to build, maintain and use textual databases including bibliographic databases. As a generalised text retrieval package with customers such as libraries, etc. INMAGIC Plus offers a great flexibility to the user in setting up and maintaining textual databases. It is an upgraded program for the older INMAGIC. It may be mentioned that INMAGIC Plus is not a typical automated library system. It has been designed as a general tool for text management with additional capabilities built into it for a library. Using INMAGIC a customer can establish multiple databases using a database design tool to create data structure. The data structure establishes what fields are found in each record within. In addition, the library can control access to the different databases using passwords.
The data is stored in a separate file. Records can be imported into the database or they can be manually entered one by one. The software allows a library to build in consistency and validity checking to ensure that a high quality database is created and maintained.
