Description from the packaging.

A fast and comprehensive net search utility that can be used off line! The McKinley Internet Directory on CD-ROM!

The perfect product to help you manage the most powerful information resource ever developed. By combining the traditional benefits offered by a yellow pages directory (comprehensive, well-organized, easy-to-use) with the revolutionary benefits of CD-ROM technology (speed, economy, search-and-retrieval, compactness), this CD-ROM edition of the McKinley Internet Directory gives you command and control over the Internet in a way never before possible.

Saves time and money. Faster and more comprehensive than online directories or net searches, the CD-ROM Internet Directory is designed as a productivity tool, which means no more waiting, no more wasted money online.

Selected and reviewed by experts to add value and save you time. The thousands of Internet resources contained on this CD-ROM have been evaluated by independent advisory boards to ensure objectivity and critical judgment. A special Star rating system informs you of the relative merit assigned each resource.
