The end of a very long era!

Remember our gigantic sets of encyclopedias from childhood?   Everyone who could afford them bought them for their kids.

This was our version of the Internet.  Whenever we heard of something new we would run look it up in our encyclopedias!

Today marks the end of the oldest English-language encyclopedia still in print, the Encyclopedia Britannica, as they move into the digital age, after a mere 244 years of publication!     First published way back in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1768.
