SAUSALITO, California-?Subscribers to Microsoft's namesake MSN online service will have access to The McKinley Group's Magellan Internet Directory.

McKinley debuted its directory and search engine last summer. The service lets users search for Web sites and also rates some sites.

Microsoft's MSN now has over 500,000 users. Originally conceived as a proprietary online service aimed at the same audience as America Online, MSN will become much more Web-oriented over the coming year, company officials revealed at an Internet strategy summit on December 7.
