DOBIS (Dortmunder Bibliotheks Informations System) was an online catalog system used in libraries. Marketed worldwide by IBM in 1985, the DOBIS system was promoted to run as a smaller, more accessible program that shared the resources of larger computer installations and not as a stand alone program. It was designed to facilitate librarians without data processing skills to create and maintain the catalog system.
