Apple IIe package available for Grolier's Electronic Encyclopedia

Library Systems Newsletter [October 1986]

The leading CD-ROM product in sales during the past month appears to have been the Grolier Electronic Encyclopedia. As might be expected, schools are the principal purchasers. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that while over 95 percent of all CD-ROM products are supported with systems configured around IBM PCs, schools are opting for Apple lIe configurations. Microtrends, Inc., is selling a package that includes 'a Jonathan 68000 card, a daughter board that supports the Phillips CM-100 drive, and KnowledgeSet retrieval software, along with the CD-ROM encyclopedia for a bundled price of $2,588. Many local Apple dealers can also supply the package.
