    Commonly Asked Questions:

    Must I have a computer to use these books?
    Absolutely not. They are outstanding reference books without using the Internet at all.

    What happens if a site goes down?
    These sites are handpicked and researched for stability (sites from BBC, PBS, Smithsonian, etc.)  Since the unexpected is possible, and for security, each recommended Web site can be accessed quickly and safely via the Usborne Quicklinks site, where the entire list of sites is regularly reviewed and updated.

    Can I download and use the pictures and photographs?
    Yes - there are hundreds of downloadable pictures and illustrations, and all may be downloaded to your computer and printed out for your own personal, non-commercial use. For example, students may download pictures to use in a school report or project, and teachers may download pictures for classroom work.
