Recommended CD-ROMs

by Torrey Nelson

When I started this page in 1995 I thought CD-ROMs were the ultimate information source. They could hold so much information on one little disk. Soon I discovered that the World Wide Web was an even better source for information and it was all at my finger tips. Hence, I have purchased very few CD-ROMs and this list still remains very short. We all hate dead links, so I will continue to publish this page, but more as a historical curiosity. Even so, the items listed are very good and I still recommend them.

first person: Mumia Abu-Jamal, Live from Death Row

This CD-ROM by Voyager works both on Macintosh and Windows systems. It is very educational and has a very usable interface.

Kodak Photo CD

Once your photos have been converted to this CD-ROM, you have a variety of resolutions to choose from. The higher resolution images are of very high quality. Of course, they are only as good as the photographs you have scanned.
