End of an era for Encyclopaedia Britannica
Posted By Microsoft Guru on 14-03-2012 in the Blog Category Daily Blogs
The iconic Encyclopaedia
Britannica has announced that it will no longer be printing physical editions
of its famous volumes. The move comes as it’s revealed that nearly 85% of sales
are now generated from online sales, rather than from the printed books.
According to news reports, the decision also means that the information can
constantly be updated for digital versions, whereas the printed ones are only
up to date to the day of printing.
The company, which has
been running for nearly 250 years, will concentrate on the digital expansion
and also the educational software arm.
