After 244 years and over 2 million printed copies, the Encyclopedia Britannica will no longer publish the reference books we grew up with but will focus exclusively on their digital website. Over the past few years most of the sales have come from the website. The company has been offering online editions of its encyclopedia for 20 years, with more than 65% of its online sales coming from educational institutions. Unlike the written books, which were updated yearly, the online edition is updated constantly.
Once you use the encyclopedia online you will quickly understand its value. There are interactive activities, videos, pictures, music, and of course articles. You can easily search for the information you are looking for. Be sure to visit The Encyclopedia Britannica’s website and enjoy the digital way of accessing information.
