  • The Grove Dictionary of Art Online provides Web access to the entire text of The Dictionary of Art with quarterly updates. It features more than 45,000 signed articles, 500,000-plus bibliographic citations and more than100,000 images of art and antiques from the Bridgeman Art Library.

  • The New Grove Dictionary of Opera Online contains all the content of the print version plus 30 new articles on recently risen stars, new factual information and direct links to nearly 300 images.

  • The Encyclopedia of Life Sciences will be the largest single, reference source published in the biological sciences. It is available for online subscription in a preview format called "Embryonic Encyclopedia of Life Sciences."

Pricing for all types of libraries is available this year and is particularly favorable for K- 12 schools and public libraries. The Encyclopedia of Life Sciences Online is only $70 per year.
