HighBeam Renames and Redesigns Its Free Encyclopedia

HighBeam Research, Inc. ( has renamed and redesigned its free online encyclopedia. Still available at the same URL (, the stand-alone service that was formerly named is now HighBeam Encyclopedia, consistent with the HighBeam family of brands—HighBeam Library, HighBeam Web, and HighBeam Reference. HighBeam Encyclopedia now offers a faster-loading design, improved navigation, and an interface with the same look and feel as the HighBeam Research Engine.

In addition to providing free access to more than 57,000 frequently updated encyclopedia articles from Columbia University Press, the new Encyclopedia is designed to make it easier for users to find newspaper and magazine articles from HighBeam Library that are directly related to an encyclopedia topic. Links to HighBeam Library's archive of more than 35 million articles from more than 3,000 sources appear along with encyclopedia results.

HighBeam Encyclopedia is now a more complementary fit with HighBeam Reference (, which includes more than 100 dictionaries, encyclopedias, almanacs, and thesauruses, as well as more than 600,000 entries from more than 100 Oxford University Press reference titles covering science, medicine, technology, literature, finance, history, and the arts, among other subjects.
