Judith Lamont is director of research for the Special Interest Group on CD Applications and Technology (SIGCAT
) Foundation in Reston, Virginia.

'97 was planned around five four-day tracks, each complemented by a preconference tutorial workshop.
The Special Interest Group on CD-ROM Applications and Technology (SIGCAT
) was established at the U.S.
It was demonstrated at the CD-ROM Expo last year in Boston at the SIGCAT
meeting and was met with audible "oohs" and "ahhs." Since then the price has gone up to $308 per copy (ProCD's list price is actually $449), with semi-annual updates available for $129 each.
The CD-ROM Consistent Interface Committee (CD-CINC), a committee of the Special Interest Group on CD-ROM Applications and Technology (SIGCAT
), has endeavored to ensure that CD-ROM databases offer similar points of access and features across interfaces.
This proposal is from SIGCAT
(Special Interest Group of CD-ROM Applications and Technology).
I spoke at many of the early conventions and meetings such as SIGCAT
[Special Interest Group for CD-ROM Applications and Technology] at the USGS [United States Geological Survey].
This year's CD-ROM Expo actually started a day earlier for members of SIGCAT
(Special Interest group on CD-ROM Applications and Technology).
