In response to what Multimedia CD-ROMs are getting use here is my list

of titles that are seeing a lot of circulation and use.

Encarta - Microsoft
Art Gallery - Microsoft
Truths and Fiction - Voyager
Passage to Vietnam
Who Built America - Voyager
American Poetry: The 19th Century - Voyager
American Sign Language
Cinemania 95
First Person: Mumia Abu-Jamal
First Person:Stepen Jay Gould--On Evolution - Voyager
Street Atlas USA
A Passion for Art

This is the short list of high circ items. We have most in both Mac and
Windows format. Use seems to be evenly divided between faculty and students.
We are receiving a lot of positive feedback from faculty - some of who have
not used computers before that the multimedia cd's are a marvelous learning
