The University of Houston-University Park Libraries have been using the Geac Acquisitions System since September 1984. The system supplies management information in the areas of fund accounting, vendor performance, collection development, order control, and system management. Benefits, such as comprehensive versus summary reports, as well as shortcomings, such as length and paging of reports, were noted.
