Katherine,

I did a little survey of academic institutions that already had CD ROMs and
many of them circulate them. However some keep certain titles that work with
their equipment on reserve. Some have a mixture of circulating and
reference titles. There was no consistent answer. However it was some time
ago when I talked to other librarians. I wonder if anyone else has an
opinion.

I am doing research for a lecture I am going to give and wondered how
libraries in general were handling CD ROMs. What kind of programs using them
were out there and who is happy with their service.
