How many of you have ever used Encyclopedia Britannica? Online or in print? Well, if you used it in print, say farewell. For the first time in 244 years, the company announced that the publication will not be sold in book form. The 2010 edition — all 32 volumes — marks the last print edition; when the current inventory is sold, the print edition will be no more. The Britannica company will continue publishing the Encyclopedia, but only digitally.
Are we sooner to saying yes when the question is – Isn’t everything online?
For a snapshot in time, you can peruse the library’s copy of the 14th edition published in 1929.
