Encyclopedia Britannica to stop printing books after 244 years
New York, N.Y., USA

Tue Mar 13, 6:24 p.m. EST: CNNMoney reports that, after 244 years, Encyclopedia Britannica will cease production of its iconic multi-volume book sets.

Britannica usually prints a new set of the tomes every two years, but 2010's 32-volume set will be its last. Instead, the company will focus solely on its digital encyclopedia and education tools.
