It publishes the most comprehensive encyclopaedic reference works in the English language: Britannica CD, on CD-ROM; Encyclopaedia Britannica Online, on the Internet; and the famous 32-volume Encyclopaedia Britannica and the 12-volume Britannica Ready Reference. In September 1998, Encyclopaedia Britannica Incorporated (EB Inc.) set-up a 100 per cent subsidiary office in New Delhi with a focus on developing region-specific encyclopaedic content and marketing Britannica's existing repertoire of products in the South Asian market through regular channels as well as the Internet. For Britannica.com Inc., India's effort with Britannicaindia.com has been an integral part of the worldwide editorial effort. This is spearheaded by the entire web-review operation for the worldwide site, an effort executed in India by a dedicated team of editors.

The office comprises a wired team of editors, copy editors, and indexers who identify, review, and present the most useful sources of information on the Internet.
