Encyclopedia Britannica online gives you three sites in one: Children; Young Adults; and the Reference Center for older students and adults. Choose the age-appropriate level that works best for you or your school age children, and conduct research, complete homework assignments, and work on special projects.

And to add colorful, sharp photos to your term paper or project, look no further than Britannica’s Image Quest.
