Sean, I am a librarian at a very small rural school, 800 total enrollment
grades K-12, in Arkansas and we have CDROM in both the elementary and high
schools.  We have one in the elementary library and expect two more in the
fall.  There are two in the high school library and several in a
Chapter 1 class.  GT also has several.  In addition we have modems and
subscibe to several online services for our students and faculty.  Our
administration is very active in promoting technology in our school.  In
addition I try to write as many grants as possible.
