Yes, the real thing—the Encyclopedia Britannica—from the aardwolf, that dastardly African carnivore, to Zamyatin, the Russian satirist. Authoritative—and awesome. First published in 1768. And now, available online, for a fee. With extras, such as a blog on recent topics and a store where you can buy the latest culturally significant piece of media. Plus the daily “On This Day,” where you can find tidbits and facts about what happened, well, on this day in history. All pretty cool, and all of this makes Encyclopedia Britannica a reference for the ages.
