A free information service based on the Columbia Encyclopedia

Encyclopedia.com, one of Internet’s free encyclopedias, provides users with more than 57,000 frequently updated entries from the Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition, and the International Social Science Encyclopedia among other authoritative sources. Each entry is enhanced with links to newspaper and magazine articles as well as pictures and maps, all provided by HighBeam Research in various formats. Info can be searched by multiple criteria. Tools like thesauri, dictionaries, almanacs, newspapers and other Encyclopedias are also provided. Resources are daily updated. Access is totally free for all kinds of users and search results can be saved, downloaded and printed without any restriction. While its graphics leaves to be desired, the website is clear and smart thanks to an interface design which uses colours to differentiate functions and utilities. Although a sitemap is not provided, a help and a FAQ file are sufficient to solve navigation and technical problems.
