Abstract:In spring 1985, the University of Illinois Library at Urbana-Champaign received a grant of more than $83,000 in Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) funds through the Illinois State Library to create and distribute its online catalog on optical disc. The grant had several objectives. The first was to determine whether optical disc technology and industry production capabilities had advanced sufficiently to make it feasible to produce a database of more than 900,000 bibliographic records on laserdisc which could be searched by microcomputer.
