The European Commission has published the latest edition of the CORDIS CD-ROM. The CD-ROM is produced by CORDIS under the VALUE (Valorization and Utilization for Europe) programme to stimulate the protection, exploitation and promotion of the results of technological research within the EU. The CORDIS CD-ROM, Edition II-1995, provides access to all the information contained in the CORDIS databases on the ECHO host up to the date of issue. The CD-ROM has the additional benefit of superior search and retrieval software as well as the facility to link related records in different databases. Information is accessed by means of an intuitive interface which makes searching fast and easy. In addition, the CD-ROM permits a global search to be carried out in all databases, with the facility to link automatically the related records in different databases. Search results are presented in a number of different ways, and a user-defined show format is also provided. Search results can also be outputted to a printer or to a file. The next edition of the CD-ROM, III-1995, will be available at an annual subscription rate of ECU 250 per year (four editions). A single edition will cost ECU 100. The CD-ROM will be distributed by the Office for Official Publications of the European Communities and their agents.
