With the advent of CD-ROM, many libraries and information centers were able to offer the benefits of online searching to their users for the first time. As the novelty of these first systems begins to wear off, libraries are facing the issue of continuing user education to offset the changes in software upgrades to existing products, new CD-ROMs and changes in the hardware technology itself. An increasing number of articles on user education are appearing. This is a welcome sign of change, growth, and maturity.
