CD-ROM statistics

Library Systems Newsletter [June 1989]

Statistics on CD-ROM installations and products are readily available. However, their reliability or believability' often leaves much to be desired. After examining a number of sources, we believe that most realistic estimates place the total number of installed drives at under 80,000, with approximately 450 titles "in print." Both figures are double the figures generally accepted for 1987, and more than quadruple the figures generally accepted for 1986.
