With the sponsorship of the IUCr (International Union of Crystallography) 
and under the organisation of the IUCr "Committee on Electronic
Publishing, Dissemination and Storage of Information"; the latest version
of the Crystallographic Nexus "virtual internet" CD-ROM has been
produced.  This free CD contains a variety of state-of-the-art
crystallographic software, source code and resources and is designed 
for academics and students in laboratories that are either isolated 
from the internet or on inadequate internet links.
