Abstract: Despite various and often contradictory predictions, CD-ROMs have neither taken the world by storm nor yet been superseded by a newer technology. They have, however, established themselves as a viable means for the distribution of certain types of information. Their capacity for storing very large amounts of data is what makes them so attractive. The fact that they have been limited to a single user has been perhaps their greatest drawback. Since their introduction, consumers have been trying to devise ways of networking these powerful tools. Although there are still significant licensing issues involved, the technical problems are beginning to be resolved. Three speakers from sites which have CD-ROM networks up and running will describe how they implemented and are running the networks.
