Title:Geac as a source of management information

Management information systems
Abstract:When Professor Lancaster called to ask if I would be willing to give a paper on management aspects of the Geac Online Circulation System,* I was both elated and apprehensive because the University of Arizona was in the unique position of just having gone from a nonstandard version of Geac software to the standard 4.0 turnkey version. At the time I accepted the invitation, no one at the University of Arizona knew much about what management data Geac could provide. I am obliged to tell you straightaway that there is still much that we at Arizona do not know about the management data Geac can provide. But in the almost two years we have been on Geac, we have learned a thing or two some of which relates to the topic of this Clinic.
