Encyclopedia Brittænica has been a go-to source for authoritative and comprehensive scholarship for hundreds of years, and for the first time you can use it for your research right in Logos!
EBNE is the gold standard of digital, general reference works. Your Logos library may be full of specialized scholarly resources focused on your particular field of study, but this authoritative resource still deserves a place in your library. Here’s why.
When you’re doing serious, academic research, you need trustworthy information. Having a reliable source is even more important when your research touches on topics outside of your immediate field of study.
You can find almost anything on the internet—but you can’t always trust what you read. Consulting online articles for a quick, cursory understanding of a topic is fine—but you can’t crowdsource the kind of scholarship you need for your next contribution to a peer-reviewed journal, term paper, or course lecture.
EBNE contains 10 million words across 19,000 articles, rigorously compiled by the editors at Encyclopædia Britannica. It puts the scholarship of expert contributors right in Logos, so you can do all of your research in one place—and safely rely on the information you find.
Seamless integration and robust data
Like all Logos resources, EBNE seamlessly integrates with other books in your Logos library. That way, when you search for a historical figure such as Philipp Melanchthon in EBNE, you can click from a reference to the Augsburg Confession, to the original text, to an English translation in a flash.
With Logos 6’s Factbook and guides, accessing scholarship from EBNE is simple. Look up “Code of Hammurabi” in the Factbook, and Logos scours all your resources, placing relevant entries from EBNE alongside other passages drawn from your library.
The Timeline—Logos’ visual chronicle of biblical history—receives a massive infusion of data with EBNE. Biblical events, people, and places are added to the Timeline, and Logos 6’s color-coded filters let you sort results by subject, type, and much more.
EBNE comes with an immense stock of images and other media—thousands-upon-thousands of photos and art, more than 1,500 maps, hundreds of videos, and more. Together, this makes for an enormous dataset that you can access at any time throughout the software. Plus, Logos 6 makes it simple to add this media to your next presentation.
