Long Review: 
For those who want the most comprehensive, authoritative, and demanding encyclopedia in the English language, Encyclopaedia Britannica remains a superb choice. In fact, the articles in Britannica can be so thorough and uncompromising that users looking for a quick answer or homework help may be disappointed. With the demise of the print version of this revered reference standard, and the financial difficulties of making the transition into the uncertain world of online reference, it remains to be seen if Britannica’s new owner will be able to maintain the reputation that has made Britannica a household name. For the moment, it remains unmatched. Users who want Britannica’s erudition and depth will not mind that its interface lacks the stylish seamlessness of Encarta or the friendly report writing features and accessibility of World Book. The interface has improved from the earlier CD-Rom versions, and photos, illustrations and maps are now available. While not recommended for use by elementary or middle school children, Britannica is a powerful and sophisticated resource for senior high through collegiate research.
