1.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Crappy June 12, 2008
I bought this as a research tool, but it's almost unusable. I had no problem with the 95/98 format, because XP has a tool to overcome that.

The problem is that the searches are clunky, you can't search PHOTOS at all, and the indexed searches are clearly NOT pulling all searches.

If you have one hundred years to browse through this behemoth in search of what you need, then by all means, buy it. If you are planning on quick, efficient searches to pull up images or even articles you need, then you're screwed.

National Geographic has a halfway decent search tool on their own web site, and most large or college libraries also have enhanced Nat Geo search tools that would be more helpful.

This product is just a poorly-indexed waste of time and effort.

Avoid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Time Geographic Lover May 22, 2007
Just for the sheer history of it. Do you remember those pre-Home Computer, after school hours spent in the library, researching the different sets of encyclopedias and those wonderful National Geographic magazines? When the opportunity to own the complete catalogue from the very first issue arose, my wife and I jumped at the chance. For she also remembers many a day, traveling the world through those magazines, and the countless pages of world class photography. Not the easiest to maneuver the text on CD-Rom, but well worth the time. Have shared the wonderful resource of information with our children also.
