Discus and Britannica Digital Learning were recently featured on Walter Edgar's Journal. Discus Program Director Amy Duernberger joined Dr. Edgar to talk about this unique set of learning resources, how Discus came to be, and the scope and reliability of its content. Then, Darcy McCanless, Manager of Professional Development for Britannica Digital Learning, spoke about the unprecedented move by Encyclopedia Britannica in publishing its latest iteration solely in the digital realm. After 244 years, this move marked the end of the 32-volume print edition of Encyclopaedia Britannica. Fortunately, for South Carolina citizens, Discus provides statewide access to Britannica Online through schools, public libraries and institutions of higher education.
