    Encyclopedia Britannica is gone!

Well, that’s the printed versions that are gone at least. Digital education and information is where Encyclopedia Britannica are heading now and it’s something they’ve forseen for a long time.

Encyclopedia Britannica had this to say today, “The end of the print set is something we’ve foreseen for some time. It’s the latest step in our evolution from the print publisher we were, to the creator of digital learning products we are today.”

Even though today sees the end of the printed editions of Encyclopedia Britannica, online versions of the company have been around for 20 years now and the digital edition is significantly larger than the printed edition with it reaching over 100 million people worldwide.

“We’re digital, we’re mobile, and we’re social,” said Cauz. “We’re a very different company from 20 or 30 years ago.”

To mark the discontinuation of the print set, the contents of the Encyclopaedia Britannica will be made free for one week starting today.
