Patrons are looking to libraries for high-quality information in CDs, but how to choose from well over 10,000 CD-ROMs on the market when budgets allow for only a few? Librarian and software expert Patrick Dewey lends guidance with succinct descriptions of 263 CD-ROM packages and series, along with references to dozens of others, all especially suitable for libraries. Each package has been tested by the author. Organised by subject for easy access, the listings include the vendor price (when available), platform and hardware requirements, availability of network versions, details about the content, searching features and capabilities, and the level of user sophistication required. For those who want more information, there is a bibliography and an appendix with address and phone number of all vendors. Though descriptions are nontechnical, a glossary provides relief for anybody confused by the technical jargon. The CD-ROM recommendations cover diverse subjects, including: art and music; business and industry; careers; education; health, medicine and nutrition; literature; maps; newspaper and periodical indexes; and US Government information and statistical data.
