Since October 1992 when the APRL transitioned from a card catalog and in-house database system to an online union catalog, the cataloging of the APRL collection has grown exponentially along with the collection. In 1992 the first records were input into the library’s new online catalog platform, GeniePlus, and with this the David Straight Memorial Philatelic Union Catalog (DSM-PUC) was born.
As we grow the services of the APRL we hope you explore and enjoy the new platform for the DSM-PUC. For any comments or questions about the new catalog feel free to contact the library at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
