Abstract
Reports on the effect of 8 CD-ROM indexes on online searching at the King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals Library, Dharan, Saudi Arabia. Presents statistical data on online searching conducted for the faculty, graduate students and researchers, before and after the acquisition of the CD-ROMs. The findings indicate a considerable decline in online searching use owing to the introduction of the CD-ROM indexes, saving a large amount of money. Discusses the impact of CD-ROM indexes on staffing in the reference department
