Weak Points:  Grolier's Encyclopedia is not helphul for interests other than papers and projects.  It doesn't give any more to a topic than just history and general information.  For example, under the topic of Mathematics it will not explain concepts or theories, just the history of the inventtor.  Also it is very difficult for younger students to use because of the use of the mouse and the slightly higher reading.
