Virtual Library Adds Timely Content, Automatic Translation
Atomica Corp. has recently released the latest version of its one-click fact finder, GuruNet 4.1. This virtual library adds timely military content plus automatic translation of its information from English to 11 other languages. When a user clicks on any word or phrase, GuruNet delivers valuable real-time reference information and answers on demand, including dictionary and encyclopedia terms, biographies, maps, news, weather and more.
In addition, GuruNet provides cross-curriculum information that teachers can use to find the facts they need in order to prepare their lessons, while students can use the same tool to conduct research. Unlike traditional search engines, which index billions of Web pages, GuruNet displays pre-compiled and organized reference data from more than 60 premium content sources.
GuruNet offers a single end-user license for $39.99, with group educational discounts available. The company also has a free introductory version of the product available, which can be downloaded from its site. For more information, visit www.gurunet.com.
