Encyclopedia Britannica Will Be Available In Digital Format Only

Britannica Encyclopedia is really an authentic source of information. However gone are the days when you could have had flipped through its print version as it has decided to stop print edition and be in digital format with immediate effect. However Amazon is still selling the print edition and will not be available once all the available stock is finished as fresh prints are not being undertaken.

It is a wise decision as CD or DVD or installed software is more than enough to get access to the latest information. Have a peek at their online edition with full access for full one week now as it is not known when they will reopen again. Have a look at an earlier YouTube video on Encyclopedia Britannica.

Here’s a quote from the NY Times article talking about it:

In an acknowledgment of the realities of the digital age — and of competition from the Web site Wikipedia — Encyclopaedia Britannica will focus primarily on its online encyclopedias and educational curriculum for schools. The last print version is the 32-volume 2010 edition, which weighs 129 pounds and includes new entries on global warming and the Human Genome Project.

“It’s a rite of passage in this new era,” Jorge Cauz, the president of Encyclopaedia Britannica Inc., a company based in Chicago, said in an interview. “Some people will feel sad about it and nostalgic about it. But we have a better tool now. The Web site is continuously updated, it’s much more expansive and it has multimedia.”

When I broke this news to our son who is 10 years old and he said that this is no news as in this era of internet and Googlism; who is going to go through 32 volumes to search information through its print version as one can get same information at a click of button in less than 5 secs. I think this is the best remark which Google can get as it has changed the way people access information.
