Just read on the Encyclopaedia Britannica blog that they have decided to move their entire works into a wiki platform.
Very interesting news indeed! I think Encyclopaedia Britannica is getting a little worried about the increasing influence of Wikipedia although many academic institutions still disallow its use for citation purposes in the students’ papers.
For me, I actually use Wikipedia quite a bit when I’m providing advisory service. I use it as my preliminary search, but then branch off to look for relevant information through our books, e-resources and the Web.
Well, will definitely keep an eye open for the Encyclopaedia Britannica wiki.
