College catalogs on CD-ROM

Library Systems Newsletter [September 1994]

A little over 20 years ago, the job of collecting and maintaining U.S. college catalogs was made easier when a microfiche edition of thousands of college catalogs was introduced. There now is a CD-ROM product—College Source—a CD-ROM of 3,600 college catalogs.

There are several search options: institution name, state, major, degrees, tuition, enrollment size, and affiliation.

The price for the national edition is $798, and four regional editions are price at $348 each. There are standing order discounts.

The product requires a 386-based PC with at least 4MB of RAM. A mouse is recoin mended. Both DOS 3.3 and Microsoft Windows 3.1 are supported.
