Microsoft Bookshelf 98 is about to hit your desktop and, as usual, it's chock full of interesting and useful reference works. The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language contains more than 80,000 spoken pronunciations. The Encarta 98 Desk World Atlas contains twice the maps as the last version of Bookshelf. There are 360-degree panoramic views (check out Yellowstone's geysers), 200 national anthems and hours of video and audio. A taskbar icon gives you instant access to Bookshelf from within any Windows 95 application.
