ABSTRACT
The article reports that after 244 years of existence, Encyclopedia Britannica's print version will cease publication. For Encyclopedia Britannica, the writing was on the virtual wall with Collier's Encyclopedia having its last published print in 1998 and Encyclopedia Americana in 2006. Attributed to the printed encyclopedia's demise is the rise of digital encyclopedias which is dominated by Wikipedia.
