Encyclopedia Britannica to stop making print versions

It's the end of an era for Encyclopedia Britannica and memories from childhood for many of us. After 244 years, it will stop making its multi-volume sets.

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

Britannica's president says the move is a natural part of his company's evolution. The company says it will keep selling print editions until the current stock of 4,000 sets runs out.
