The books are presented as graphic images, so the user sees the works just as they were originally published. They are intended to look and function very much like "real" books, i.e., the user looks for entries of interest in the table of contents or index, and then turns to the page cited and scans it for the desired information. Although there are no electronic indexes, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to navigate through the books and indexes, and to jump from one book to another. 2000, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, v6, PC and Mac, 1500 pp. 101-CD1364 ISBN: 0788413643
