New Feature = Encyclopedia Britannica Online

The Rutgers University Libraries are pleased to announce a significant new addition to our suite of resources for students, staff, and faculty - Encyclopedia Britannica Online.

Encyclopedia Britannica Online includes the complete encyclopedia, as well as Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary and the Britannica Book of the Year. Encyclopedia Britannica Online also allows users to search an Internet directory that includes more than 130,000 links to Web sites selected, rated, and reviewed by Britannica editors.

Through this service, you can find more than 72,000 articles, updated and revised by EB editors and contributors; over 10,000 illustrations, including photographs, drawings, maps, and flags; and more than 75,000 definitions - including pronunciation guides and word histories - from Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary.
