Encyclopaedia Britannica Ceases Print Publication

The New York Times reports that the Encyclopaedia Britannica after 244 years will cease to offer the print version of the Encyclopedia. The Encyclopedia will continue to be offered online.

 “It’s a rite of passage in this new era. 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.”

Jorge Cauz, president of Encyclopaedia Britannica Inc.
