Now you can easily give your readers access to any of Britannica's 120,000 articles from your web site or blog.

Just follow the instructions below and when your reader clicks through the link to Britannica from your site, he or she will be able to view the complete article—even those that normally require a subscription to read—as a free sample (please see the note below).


Simply place this HTML code within your site code...

<a href="[cut & paste full URL of the article to which you wish to link]">[type in keyword or subject of the article. You can reference Britannica if you want…or not.]</a>

For example, to link to the Britannica Online Article on nanotechnology, the article URL is


Your HTML code would then look like...

<a href="http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/962484/nanotechnology">nanotechnology article from Britannica</a>

Note: This code will link users to the article on our publicly accessible Britannica site (http://britannica.com). Readers that we recognize as members of a college or library that subscribes to Britannica will have the same experience as a paid subscriber to the public site with full access to the entire site in an advertising-free environment. Readers that are not members of a subscribing institution will still be able to access the full article, however additional content may be restricted and users may be served advertising.

Also please note that for Readers that do not have access via a subscription that the link will need to the full Britannica article only when the page holding the link is hosted on a Web Server. When you test this page on your local machine, it will still lead to the truncated version of tha article. This is not an error, and when the same page is put on a Web Server it will still work as intended.
