The Complete National Geographic Magazine - 1980-1989
Parents have always bought National Geographic magazine to expand their children's horizons as much as their own. Both will find an almost inexhaustible source of information and entertainment in The Complete National Geographic, an astounding collection of every article, photograph, and advertisement from 110 years of the magazine's history.
For those of us who suffered through sunny afternoons spent with the Dewey decimal system–or, heaven help us, the microfiche machines–the marvel of a century's worth of this impressive magazine on CD-ROM can't be underestimated. The pictures come alive on the screen, and a robust search engine delivers spectacular results. (Especially in these days of watered-down and inappropriate search results, the National Geographic Library is a perfect synthesis of information and modern technology for wary parents.)
