"… Clearly bets the paper set for everyday reference needs." - Multimedia World, October 1993.

From more than 80,000 spoken pronunciations to 40 audio lips of John F. Kennedy, Dylan Thomas, and others, to more than 160 national anthems- you'll be amazed by all you'll hear!

You'll find 230 flags and more than 160 maps and hear pronunciations of difficult names. And automatic links take you to related topics throughout Bookshelf '94.

Bookshelf '94 brings reference material to life- complete with video clips of historic events.

The Concise Columbia Encyclopedia features more than 50 animations, which actively illustrate complex concepts such as the human heart.

Spend your time using information, rather than looking for it! Bookshelf '94 makes it easy to search seven reference books in seconds for just the information you need. You can even copy and paste images, text, or audio into documents for your personal use!

Working in another application? The QuickShelf feature takes you into Bookshelf- and finds the information you need- with a single mouse click. And QuickShelf is just one of many enhancements that make Bookshelf '94 easier and more enjoyable to use!
