What age level is the InfoTrac College Edition appropriate for?

We truly have something for everyone. However, we do not feature "adult" magazines (for example, Playboy, etc.).
Why use the InfoTrac College Edition vs. A Web search engine?    
  The World Wide Web offers users a tremendous amount of valuable information. But there's a lot of valuable periodical, newspaper and other reference information that's just not available on the Web in one easy-to-get-to place. InfoTrac College Edition offers the depth, breadth and comprehensiveness of information that can't be found anywhere else with one single search.

With the InfoTrac College Edition, you gain access to more than 800,000 periodical, newspaper, and other reference articles.

How was the InfoTrac College Edition developed?    
  The InfoTrac College Edition was developed in conjunction with Gale Group, the premiere provider of electronic reference databases for schools, libraries, and corporations. The 800,000+ article database is updated daily.
