Encyclopedia Britannica becomes totally digital

The world’s best-known and most-reliable reference encyclopedia ‘Encyclopedia Britannica’ that was first published 244 years ago, will no longer be available in print. After 244 years in print, the 32-volume Encyclopaedia Britannica will be discontinued..

But the encyclopedia will live on and grow in the myriad digital forms which have been popular with millions for years. In announcing the end of the print set, in March 2012, we also stressed the wide diversity of our product line today, which includes not just reference works but curriculum and learning solutions used in schools around the world.
