You asked for it, and we responded – we’re happy to report that the MIT Libraries once again subscribes to Britannica Online! You can find it in Vera, or use this short-cut URL: http://libraries.mit.edu/get/britannica. (Note: if you’re off-campus, be sure your certificates are up to date!)
Since 1768, Britannica has been one of the most trusted information sources for researchers trying to gain a quick understanding of a topic. Updated daily, the online version continues that tradition, and is a great place to start your research!
