The Multimedia Edition also contains an atlas with thousands of maps, plus historical information, relevant articles, and geographic statistics. And yes, this disc contains the complete 22-volume set of World Book Encyclopedia.
The World Book Multimedia Edition is a DVD-ROM, which functions similarly to a CD-ROM, except it holds much, much more information. Installation requires internet access, but this disc is both Windows and Macintosh compatible (Win XP SP2 or later, Vista, 7, 8, and 10, and Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later, including Mountain Lion).
