First American Title Insurance Company's Underwriting LibraryTM--Electronic Edition was named "Best Commercial Infobase" by Folio Corporation at its annual conference, Infobase '94, in Salt Lake City on Wednesday, June 29. A producer of electronic publishing software, Folio Corporation recognized products published utilizing its software with awards in various categories.

The Underwriting Library is an electronically published infobase which provides easy access to underwriting guidelines, title insurance forms, informative articles, and real estate practices nationwide, as well as a directory of First American offices.

"We are very pleased to have our product selected as Best Commercial Infobase," said Philip N. Webb, Assistant Senior Underwriter for First American. "The Underwriting Library is our first venture into electronic publishing, and it is gratifying to have our efforts acknowledged by Folio Corporation. We are enthusiastic about the positive response we've received from our offices and customers who use the program, and we plan to expand and to build upon its features in the future."
