I am currently evaluating the use of CD-ROM's in our office. I'd be interested in comments on any of the current material available, e.g. AISC's "LRFD on CD" and ACI's "Manual of Concrete Practice".

Shafat et al...                                                                
Is there anything happening at this time to place SEAOC documents, charts,     
etc on a CD-ROM? I've wanted to see something like this develop for some time  
I think it would be a tremendous tool, and in the thread of discussion here,   
continue to provide revenue into the organization as selling published (paper) 
documents does. Would the engineers on this list server find a CD-ROM useful or
would it be another 'gadget'?                                                  
Being able to do searches on keywords I think would save us a bit of time.     
If the ECC is considering anything like this, I'd like to know about it and    
have some multimedia recording gear which may help in the process of making an 
interesting as well as informative CD-ROM.
