NOTES:

  • As with all web-based applications, please be sure that your school has enough bandwidth to run the application, even when used concurrently by several students.  If you have questions about your school’s bandwidth, please contact DIIT.
  • For those schools with very limited bandwidth, Encyclopedia Britannica provides standalone DVDs and CD-ROMs, which contain a rich treasury of material analogous to what exists in the online Encyclopedia.  To order these discs, contact Encyclopedia Britannica sales engineer Jared McCarthy, at (800) 621-3900 X7274.
