Having the data in electronic form also makes it easier for the user to carry out calculations and look for trends that may lead to new scientific insights. Although these advantages were recognized much earlier, the transition to electronic dissemination of scientific data did not begin to accelerate until the mid-1990s. Two factors have contributed: the expanding availability of personal computers with CD ROM drives and the explosive growth of the Internet. The CD ROM has proved to be an efficient means for distributing physical and chemical databases and the accompanying software to individuals for use on their personal computers.

This is at first sight astonishing since, according to the classical Equipartition of Energy theorem, there should on average be a thermal energy of 32 kB T per electron ( 12 kB T per degree of freedom, of which there are three for a gas), leading to an electronic molar specific heat contribution of 32 R. The result is easily explicable, however, in terms of Fermi–Dirac statistics. The Fermi temperature of the electron gas in a typical metal turns out to be TF 5 × 104 K. Thus, even at room temperature, T TF , and the electrons must be regarded as being effectively at a very low temperature.
