Surveys show Apple Computers are the most popular brand in schools, and that's hardly surprising: Easy to set up, learn, use, & network makes Apple the Teacher's pet,while taxpayers (like myself!) really appreciate their lower long-term cost.

You'll be pleased to know that many Colleges & Universities offer an online database chock full of helpful information. Here is my current list of Sherlock Plug-ins for Educational websites such as Colleges, Universities, or sites of interest to Teachers. Refer to the instructions at the right, check to see if your school is displayed below, and quickly add to the power of Sherlock on your Apple Macintosh computer!
