THE Hong Kong University of Science and Technology has installed the first networked CD-ROM 'jukebox' system in Asia. At the click of a computer mouse, students can access complete texts of articles from over 1,000 journals on the university's computer. The university library's CD-ROM image database is the largest such system outside the United States. The Powerpages software, created by University Microfilms International, contains over 1,300 CD-ROM discs. The university's library director, Chang Min-min, said the database contained business, management, social science and other subjects. Updated monthly, it allows university staff and students to locate articles of interest from desktop stations, and send them to a printer in the library. 'The entire process is automated, eliminating the time delays required for more traditional loan requests,' Ms Chang said. 'These articles are available 24 hours a day.'
