New e-Resource - Britannica Academic Edition

Following a successful trial, a subscription to Britannica Academic Edition has been taken out by the Library. 

Encyclopaedia Britannica is a trusted research resource which provides an excellent foundation for undergraduate study, in particular.  Britannica articles are detailed and use thorough and well-referenced research. They encourage best practice in researching skills, while encouraging wider reading around a subject.

Britannica Academic Edition provides clear and current articles, biographies, country comparisons, e-books, images, news, 'On This Day', timelines, quotations, videos, world data analysis, etc - all clearly cited and referenced, providing research material for students and staff.
