There are a number of issues affecting the pricing of CDROM technologies, but two of them are both contentious and could potentially have a serious impact upon the field. Their resolution at the moment is not clear. Since CDROM technology holds great potential for library service, and it is particularly attractive in the context of the less well developed countries (Beaumont & Balson 1988; Brito 1989), it is therefore important that the field address these potential issues early on. The two concerns are lapsing ownership and metered pricing.
