Today databases held on CD-ROMs cover practically all subjects and provide a way for a library to acquire a large quantity of regularly updated information. Coupled with the relatively cheap network equipment that is now available, these CD-ROMs should also be able to provide a very useful network resource for an entire library or even campus. However the current crop of CD-ROMs vary enormously in their ease of use in a networked environment.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue3/trenches" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue3 tooled up jon knight loughborough university authentication cd-rom data database licence passwords search technology software standards windows Sat, 18 May 1996 23:00:00 +0000 editor 84 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk URL Monitoring Software and Services http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue3/autotrack <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue3/autotrack#author1">Paul Hollands</a> describes and compares tools to help you notice when a Web-based resource has been updated.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><b>Paul Hollands:</b> One of the problems that the academic community faces with respect to the Internet is that certain types resources are, by nature, subject to rapid change (eJournals and eZines for example).
