Pupils will now be able to search the Encyclopaedia Britannica online for free, with the resource being launched in Edinburgh, the city where it began. The printed edition ended its run in March this year, but the digital facility will be available to every pupil until the end of October. The package has been specially created for schools, and is split into three distinct age-groups. Britannica was founded in the Scottish capital in 1768. It was started amid the great intellectual fervour of the Scottish Enlightenment.
