There is a growing awareness of the advantages of the
applications of CD-ROM networking in libraries. The
databases can be effectively shared among
multi-users simultaneously or within the library or the
organisation or several libraries.
The CD-ROM technology is discussed to provide basic
understanding of the technology. This will further
improve the understanding of CD-ROM networking. The
CD-ROM networking technology is thoroughly discussed to
provide an in-depth information of the technology. The
cabling system; network topologies; CD-ROM network
software; network operating system; case studies of its
application in various libraries etc. are investigated.
