Description from the packaging.

It's the illustrated, animated, talking reference library for home, office, or school. Microsoft Bookshelf brings the excitement of sight and sound to seven of the most popular reference books. For business, it's essential. For learning, it's sensational.

Use the Atlas to get a wealth of information about the world. You can look up extensive facts, listen to national anthems, hear pronunciation of country and city names, see flags, and inspect color topographic maps.

On a single CD, you get a broad range of reference volumes that are remarkably easy to use.

The almanac is a valuable source of facts and statistics about the world- information you can import to your Windows-based spreadsheet or other application.

Multimedia animation brings complex ideas to life. For instance, you can click on this generator and watch it operate. Other animations clearly explain important concepts from nature, technology, and more.

Microsoft Bookshelf, Multimedia Edition, puts an amazingly broad range of information at your fingertips. And new features for 1992 make that information come alive: more powerful automatic links between volumes, 500 new illustrations, new animations, pronunciations of city names, and more. On a single CD, you get:

  • The Concise Columbia Encyclopedia, with 15,000 entries that include maps, illustrations, and animations.
  • The American Heritage Dictionary, with more than 65,000 entries, each pronounced, and nearly a thousand illustrations.
  • Roget's II Electronic Thesaurus, with 50,000 entries.
  • The World Almanac and Book of Facts, with important facts and statistics about every nation in the world, including the latest U.S. census data.
  • Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, with 22,500 quotations organized chronologically and by author's name.
  • The Concise Columbia Dictionary of Quotations, with 6,000 entries organized by subject.
  • Hammond Atlas, with maps of countries worldwide and all 50 United States, plus national flags and anthems.

And multimedia technology brings it all together. Watch dozens of animations that bring facts to life. Hear quotations, pronunciations, narration, and anthems. Explore compelling graphics and text. And export pictures, tables, text, and sounds from all seven books to your own documents or files.

Microsoft Bookshelf, Multimedia Edition, is a rich resource for any home, business or school. It not only helps you learn- it helps you understand.
