Library. That's my first thought. Our library has online databases and one of them is an encyclopedia and it's free with your library card.

As a NY State resident, I also have a card to the New York Library in NYC and they have an even larger database. World Encyclopedia is on there plus they have other things you can research. Last time I looked, there was something available for out of state residents. It might be worth looking at if your library doesn't have one. It would give you lots of research options.

We bought a CD Rom for Beyond. I bought one that was a year or two old (how much changes on them in a year or two?) on ebay for less than 10 bucks. It served us well until high school.

Our library has encyclopedias online that we are using these days. Free is in the budget. :thumb:
