CD-ROM. Introduction, Problems and Evaluation: A practical approach to their introduction and development (1998)

Abstract This article is based on a conference paper delivered to the annual conference of the Assistant Librarians Group of the Library Association. Many of the audience were at the initial stages of developing CD-ROM applications in their libraries. Over the past ten years Dublin City University (hereafter DCU) library has faced many of the issues and challenges public libraries are facing today. This paper provides the background against which decisions as to whether to purchase CD-ROMs are made. It then examines practical issues such as finance, management and promotion of CD-ROM databases. DUC's increasing use of the Internet as a gateway to commercial databases, is also briefly explored.
