“I was staggered by the depth and breadth of information available...a powerhouse. How good is it? Content: 10. Design: 10. Navigability: 10. Usability: 10. It's solid, and, yes, it's a 10...What content and what a tour de force of a system...An essential purchase for academic and public libraries; school libraries should certainly take a serious look, too.”
