  • Description:
    "The NOAA Library and Information Services Division began adding CD-ROM's to the collection in 1988. The first CD-ROM's were Applied Science and Technology Index, Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Abstracts, and NTIS. The first public CD-ROM workstations were IBM PS/2 model 30's with Philips CM100 CD-ROM players and IBM Proprinters. Some CD-ROMss require Microsoft's CD-ROM extensions, others do not. Therefore, only ha1f of the workstations have the extensions installed. To assist the user, a main menu executes the starting command for each CD-ROM. As other environmental and earth-science related CD-ROM's become available, the library adds them to the workstations. In 1989, another workstation consisting of an IBM PS/2 model 70 with mouse and a NEC model CDR-77 and Epson FX850 printer was installed. Also the IBM PS/2 model 30's were upgraded with the installation of Paradise VGA Plus cards. The NOAA Library and Information Network Catalog on CD-ROM is available at all NOAA libraries and information centers and at some NOAA administrative offices"-- Page i.
