Britannica Bytes
After 244 years, Encyclopaedia Britannica will cease publishing paper editions and become a solely digital resource. Britannica has had digital editions on CD-ROM and online for the last thirty years, and will continue updating and publishing online. Unlike Wikipedia with its anonymous authors and crowd-sourced editing, digital Britannica will still be produced by professional editors and named authors who actually know what they’re writing about.
