A Taste of the Web [and] Cooperative Electronic Library on Disability (CO-NET). [CD-ROM] 11th Edition.
This resource consists of two separate but related CD-ROM products packaged together by the publisher. "A Taste of the Web" is a collection of disability-related information and links gathered from selected sites on the World Wide Web. Using a Web browser, the user can explore the information on the CD just as if they were connected to the actual Web sites. The information on this CD is organized into three main areas: (1) the Trace Center Web site, containing information about universal design and computer access; (2) Disability-related Web sites, containing information on specific types of disability (e.g., blindness) and on federal disability policy; (3) Unusual and interesting Web sites (only short descriptions of each site are provided). The second CD is entitled the"Cooperative Electronic Library on Disability" and is attributed to the "Cooperative Database Distribution Network for Assistive Technology (CO-NET). The information on this CD is organized into four groups: (1) Products--DOS-ABLEDATA describes over 23,000 products for people with disabilities. DOS-TRACEBASE describes 1300 assistive technology products; (2) Services--Some 15 "Cooperative Service Directories" (CSD) list disability services in various states and regions; (3) Information Resources--Six "Publications, Media, and Materials" (PMM) databases, including the 51,000-item REHABDATA, contain descriptions of books, articles, videos, etc., on disability topics; (4) Text Documents--the "Text Document Library" contains the full text of over 300 disability-related documents.
