Britannica Online Public Library Edition: New Content

Britannica has some new content. In reading the April 15th, 2008 Booklist Spring Database Update article it lists a new quotation source and a gateway to classics within Britannica Public Library edition. The amount of quotes "4000 ... from both historical and contemporary men and women" is not particular overwhelming or the "225 works by 140 [classic] authors", but both are a nice additional add - link to source. On an unrelated matter, I found fascinating news stories from major sources like the NY Times and BBC. If you like Yahoo.com featured articles, chances you make like the smaller amount of profiled news stories and recently updated articles on the Britannica public library edition. It is nice every once in a while to just think about the trusty on-standby encyclopedias.
