After 244 years, Britannica announces it will discontinue its print version

As reported in the New York Times, “Encyclopaedia Britannica will focus primarily on its online encyclopedias and educational curriculum for schools. The last print version is the 32-volume 2010 edition, which weighs 129 pounds and includes new entries on global warming and the Human Genome Project.”
It’ll be interesting how this will change basic intro to research courses when “check an encyclopedia to get started” isn’t actually an option…
