Bextel > Introduction


In June 1986 the London Borough of Bexley installed at its Central Reference Library a Private Videotex System (PVS) which was then launched as a public service in August 1986. This superseded the Library's small Prestel database, which had been in existence since 1979; but was then curtailed to a few pages retained for online user registration.

The October 1983 Prestel Directory lists Bexley's online site so:
Bextel - Bexley London Borough... 42014
