Abstract
The University of Minnesota Bio-Medical Library's education technology program purchases computer-assisted instruction (CAI) software for curriculum support of health sciences courses. CAI purchase decisions are made after preview by a faculty member and a librarian. Purchased software is housed in the Core Collection and Reserve locations within the library. At the library, 77 CAI programs were previewed for purchase consideration between 1996-1998. Analysis of the comments made by health sciences faculty during the preview process suggests some of the factors used when choosing a CAI title for curriculum support.
