Most people are familiar with the multi-volume Encyclopedia Britannica from their public library. Searching through the Encyclopedia Britannica, they could find information on almost any topic imaginable, and if they were lucky, pictures and graphs would be included in the entry.

With the advent of the internet, Encyclopedia Britannica has taken their product much further with their online edition of their classic encyclopedia. This encyclopedia, which is accessible 24/7 through the library’s website, has all of the information available in the print version but is enhanced with practical help and extra information, including photos, videos, and sound recordings.
 
Let’s compare a search for Mark Twain in the print and online versions. A search for Mark Twain in the print version yields a thorough article including a picture of the author. The online version of Encyclopedia Britannica includes everything the print has plus more! In the online version, the introduction page for the entry on Mark Twain has all the information neatly organized into five different areas. The first area, which is located directly under the article title offers a lot of practical features that will help cite the article, translate into Spanish, and email the article in order to share with others or to keep for yourself. There are also links to print the individual pages of the article and the entire article.

Film noir is not easily defined. The actual words come from French and mean "black cinema." It was in France during the post-war years that the term was used to describe a certain set of Hollywood films that were saturated with a darkness and cynicism that was not seen before. These movies included The Maltese Falcon (1941), Double Indemnity (1944), Laura (1944), and Murder, My Sweet (1944).
