‘Eccentric genius’ contributed to revolutionizing library cataloging

“The first CD-ROMs started making their way into businesses in 1984. Based on laser disc technology, CD-ROMs could hold more than 400 times as much data as a floppy disc on a single CD. In 1985, Brower Roberts (then known as Brower Murphy) published the first CD-ROM cataloging software for libraries. BiblioFile was hailed as an innovative software in 1990 at the Optical Publishing Association’s Fifth Annual Conference on CD-ROM.” (via Tampa Bay Times)
