The ""Best of the Net CD-ROM is a new product of the Digital Media Group, a division of O'Reilly and Associates, Inc. Serving as an Internet ""Starter Kit,"" the ""Best of the Net CD-ROM gives a hearty introduction to some of the best information resources available on the Internet. Included on the CD are versions of Mosaic for PC, MAC, and UNIX platforms; the Global Network Navigator (TM) (GNN); and selections from award-winning ""Best of the Net"" World Wide Web documents. In addition, users will receive a simple booklet explaining Mosaic and its installation.

In GNN, you will find Netnews, a news service that keeps you up-to-date with what's happening on the Net. You will find the Arcade, which features an online reading room and the comics of Doonesbury and Dilbert, along with sports and weather updates. And, because there are so many good subject areas to explore on the Net, there are GNN Metacenters, which are like special-interest online publications aimed at serving the needs of a particular audience. GNN Metacenters not only gather the best Internet resources together in one convenient place, they also add new material from a variety of sources. Each GNN Metacenter contains feature articles as well as columns, subject-oriented reference guides for using the Internet, and commentary by Internet experts. You can explore subject areas such as Travel, Personal Finance, Music, Education, and the Internet itself.

The editors of GNN have chosen a handful of exceptional Internet documents to receive the ""Best of the Net"" award. On the ""Best of the Net CD-ROM, you can experience the art history database of the Australian National University, consisting of more than one thousandprints. You can explore the Science Fiction Resource Guide which organizes access to science fiction books, movies, television, awards, trivia, conventions, and more. And don't overlook New Zealand Information: A multimedia document providing a wealth of information about New Zealand, including speeches in the native Maori language and descriptions of the most ancient of all living reptiles, the Tutara. In this edition, there are eight ""Best of the Net"" winners in all.

With a subscription to the ""Best of the Net CD-ROM, you will receive a new CD every three months, giving you a taste of the Internet's most exciting hyperlinked documents. This collection will be of extreme interest to anyone wanting to sample Internet and its most popular viewer, Mosaic. In the classroom, it is also an effective tool.
