Encyclopaedia Britannica Ends its Print Edition

Encyclopaedia Britannica recently announced that it will stop publishing the print edition of the encyclopaedia which has been in printing for about 200 years.  The classic reference source was first published in 1768 and was a staple for not only students but other users as well.  The online edition will continue to be available but there is still time to obtain the last of the remaining sets for $1,395.  Click here to read the entire article, also click here to read a great blog post from the Chicago Tribune on this entitled "What Killed Encyclopaedia Britannica?"
