Advancement in computer storage devices have changed the way information is being acquired, stored, organised, retrieval and disseminated by Libraries and Information Centres (LICs). In this paper an attempt has been made to highlight the various characteristics of the optical storage devices i.e CD-ROM and DVD-ROM along with their possible usage in LICs. Discusses why networking of the CD-ROMs and DVD-ROMs has an edge over standalone systems and the various architectures available and their advantages and disadvantages.
