At its July 1991 meeting, BISAC agreed to convene a workshop aimed at standardizing protocols for a more sensitive probe for berylliosis called LTT testing.
Given that the LTT screening was likely to go forward despite its reservations, BISAC provided its input on what information from the screening program should be communicated to Brush Wellman employees.

A second interface enables users to release orders electronically using BISAC or Enriched BISAC, an add-on product developed by Dynix and Brodart.
The most exciting aspect of the Enriched BISAC is that no bibliographic information needs to be entered or updated manually for most of the items a library orders," said Shelley Neville, library systems analyst for Ameritech Library Services.
The TIPS and BISAC interfaces can be used together or independently and were developed through the cooperation of Brodart and Ameritech with the help of their mutual customers.
The libraries have licensed the Acquisitions, Authority Control, Bibliographic and Inventory Control, Circulation, Enhanced Public Access, and Serials Control Modules; the BISAC
interface; and X12 software.
