MONTREAL, CANADA - April 23, 1999 - As a result of a Québec-government initiative to upgrade all of its municipal libraries to have Internet access and the latest in library high-technology, seven additional Quebec municipal libraries have chosen Best-Seller's web-based PortFolio software.

The municipal libraries of Beauport, Lévis, l'Ancienne-Lorette, St-Augustin, St-Jean Chrysostome, Charlesbourg and Sillery shall all integrate their collections and make them available to other libraries via the Internet. With Best-Seller's PortFolio software, users will be able to query any library worldwide.
