                   -- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE --
   Axxess Information Solutions begins business August 1, 1994
The Missouri Library Network Corporation is proud to announce its

start  business  on  August  1,  1994.  MLNC's  sales  of  CD-ROM
equipment will be transfered to the new company.
Axxess  Information Solutions offers a full line of  Hitachi  and
Todd single, tower and network CD-ROM systems, as well as Pioneer
CD-ROM  changers, which MLNC has been selling to libraries  since
1988.   In  addition,  a number of add-on software  packages  are
available.  In the first year, Axxess plans to expand its product
lines  to  include CD Recordable drives, computers, and  computer
networking   and  consulting.   Purchasing  from  Axxess   allows
libraries  to  obtain equipment from a company dedicated  to  the
special  needs of the library/education field.  They are familiar
with  the  current  uses  of  equipment  in  libraries,  schools,
hospitals and other educational and service organizations.
