Encyclopedia Britannica going digital, calling it quits in printing
It's a sign of the times.
The Encyclopedia Britannica will soon become a thing of the past. After 244 years the iconic multi-volume book set is calling it quits. The 2010 32-volume set will be the last.
Instead the company will focus solely on its digital products. Britannica's president says the move is a natural part of the company's evolution.
