   On Nov. 6, 1997, I wrote asking for information on virtual animal
 dissection on CD Rom.   More than a dozen individuals responded.

  The library staff has given the information to the Science Department.
 I have listed a summary below.  While one internet site can do virtual
 dissection online, the Science Department was not interest using this
 online program.

  Four companies were selected for previewing CD Rom material. They are:

 All four companies have the CD Rom program available in both Macintosh
 and IBM/PC formats.  Individual programs, Lab packs and Networks versions
 are available by these companies.
 I home this list will be helpful to those libraries considering this
 type of CD Rom program.
 This is by no means an endorsement of any one company.  Programs will
 be previewed, assessed and evaluated.  This is our high
 school's way of meeting student's needs to provide student centered
 learning for virtual animal dissection.
