Encyclopedia Britannica is coming to New York – it’s online and it’s free!

I remember the days when Encyclopedia Britannica was ALL WE HAD to do research.  I remember having the set at home and it was the go-to source for information.  Then they came out with Britannica as a software disc…and then GOOGLE TOOK OVER, lol, and the rest is history.

So the information below brings back memories and I am excited for this resource to become available!
