Why Encyclopedias
The World Heritage Encyclopedia includes the great general encyclopedias of the past and the present but all types of works that claim to provide in an orderly arrangement the essence of "all that is known" on a subject or a group of subjects, translated from the Koine Greek enkyklios paideia, which literally means "complete knowledge". As French philosopher, and contributor of the Encyclopedie Denis Diderot, said "Indeed, the purpose of an encyclopedia is to collect knowledge disseminated around the globe; to set forth its general system to the men with whom we live, and transmit it to those who will come after us, so that the work of preceding centuries will not become useless to the centuries to come; and so that our offspring, becoming better instructed, will at the same time become more virtuous and happy, and that we should not die without having rendered a service to the human race. "

Is Print Obsolete?

Even the world famous Encyclopedia Britannica will no longer be printed after 244 years, the final edition costing almost $1400.
