dc.descriptionAbstract: User acceptance of optical storage technology has been slow because of problems pertaining to access time, transfer rates, and lack of industry standards. This technology, however, offers three distinct advantages over the present high-density magnetic media: greater storage density; less sensitivity to data corruption, contamination, or malicious alteration; and elimination of mechanical dam age. The most prevalent optical storage media are Compact Disc-Read Only Memory, Write Once Read Many, and Erasable Optical Discs. These media are described and evaluated according to their capabilities and limitations within each of the Information Management (IR) areas. The individual IR areas (namely, Library, Printing, Records Management, Visual, Scientific and Engineering, and Automation) are considered in relation to the current level of optical technology, and options for the US Anny Corps of Engineers are presented.-
