Isaac Asimov’s Library of the Universe
Isaac Asimov’s Library of the Universe, a six-disc series from Zane Publishing, is based on the children’s book series about astronomy that was originally written by the scientist and author. Updates have since been added. Zane has used their PowerCD format to turn the books into filmstrips. Although there are points of interest to be found, these are still only filmstrips – a videotape would be a better way to deliver this material. The original book version is best of all. If you want to use your computer to learn about the universe, we suggest you look beyond this Library of the Universe.
