InMagic databases on the Web

Now and again I've seen queries about end-user delivery of local
database information via the Internet/WWW. I think that the InMagic
DB/SearchWorks (standalone database) and the DB/TextWorks "web
publishing" version are good examples of this approach, in regards to
product capacity, robustness, and performance. 

For those interested in examining such products, you might take a quick
look at some existing InMagic product implementations. We have several
DB/TextWorks Web information systems running here at the Oregon State
Library, and are *very* satisfied with the product performance and
maintenance ease.

The list below are examples of InMagic implementations. The list comes
from the excellent vendor Web site at Crew-Noble Information Services,
of Danville CA. You can check it out at...

>From their list of demos, here follows my selected list of nice
DB/TextWorks implementations. BTW, some of these are simply good
information resources...
