Purpose: This book will give the students a broad set of information to learn from. The book will contain information from all over the world on a variety if different subjects. The book will give students insight into topics of interest.
Validity: DK Publishing has all types of illustrated reference books. They have several award winning books published.
Format: Print Reference- Encyclopedia

The book also provides questions to help guide the readers throughout the text.

As the paperless future approaches, certain sorts of publications have inevitably moved into the all-digital realm faster than others. Most of us still prefer paper when it comes to beach novels, for instance, or the cherished volumes of our personal libraries. At the other extreme, scientific journals effectively went all-digital years ago, and thanks to GPS, maps and road atlases are quickly following. Last week saw another milestone: the symbolic funeral of paper encyclopedias, with the inevitable announcement that the Encyclopedia Britannica is ceasing print publication. Encyclopedias, along with other reference works, would seem particularly obvious candidates for digitization. They are nowhere near as easily and thoroughly searchable as their digital counterparts. They cannot be easily updated, still less constantly updated.
