Markham, Ont. -- (March 2, 1993) -- Geac Computer Corporation Limited is pleased to announce that the Library of the Department of the Secretary of State of Canada and Multiculturalism and Citizenship Canada has chosen Geac's Unix-based ADVANCE Integrated Library System.
The Departmental Library system will be based on a Motorola 88100 server with both dial-in and local area network connections. Headquartered in Hull, Quebec, the Departmental Library serves the employees of two Canadian federal government departments: The Secretary of State of Canada and the recently-created Department of Multiculturalism and Citizenship Canada.
The Departmental Library is a network of 10 libraries in six cities: Hull, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto and Winnipeg. The Library has 60,000 titles, an annual circulation of over 100,000 and provides on-site consultation and reference service to the general public. Fully fifty percent of the library's users are responsible for terminology or translation functions.
Stephen J. Sadler, President and CEO of Geac, said, "We are delighted that the ADVANCE system meets the unique needs of the Department of the Secretary of State of Canada."
