Encyclopaedia Britannica is so much more than an Encyclopaedia; it's a database, pulling in media and websites from around the internet to supplement the encylopaedia articles.
Search here for background and biographical information. Use broad and narriow search terms rather than questions or phrases. Encylopaedias work well with key words.
