Well it had to happen, after 244 years, Encyclopaedia Britannica will stop selling print editions and switch to digital editions only. Encyclopaedia Britannica Inc. President Jorge Cauz says that this does not mean the Britannica is dead. The company will continue to offer the digital editions of the encyclopedia.
This switch was in the cards. Since the early nineties people have looked more and more to the web for information. Going over to a stack of books just didn’t fit in with people’s more mobile lifestyles anymore.
If you are interested in picking up the final hardcover edition of Britannica, for old times sake, you can buy it at the company’s website for $1,395.
Or download the iPad app for free and pay 1.99 a month to access unlimited content from Britannica vast resources.
