Youth librarians know that even reasonably priced software and CD-ROMs can be galaxies away from low-budget realities. Still, many wonderful multimedia programs can be found at relatively low prices. In this one-of-a-kind consumer guide for librarians and media specialists, educator Calvin Ross distinguishes between the must-haves and the nice-to-haves for both Macintosh and Windows platforms.

Ross uncovers a legion of talented programmers, inspired by an educational mission and a love of children, who are distributing inexpensive software over the Internet and commercial online services. He visited countless Web sites and sifted through thousands of shareware and freeware programs to recommend 298 of the best bargain resources for children. With money-saving advice on low-cost computer applications for library staff, revitalizing donated computers, and more, you'll make the most of workstations without spending a fortune!
