Geac's ADVANCE product is rapidly maturing. Not only did a recent release include Boolean searching, the next release (2.0) will include novice and expert OPAC user interfaces and PC-based circulation back-up. The Beta release of acquisitions is projected for the third quarter of 1990, and serials control three months later. Therefore, in early 1991, Geac should be able to hold its own in the increasingly competitive market.
