Bing adds Encyclopedia Britannica answers

In a blog post on the Bing Search blog today, Bing announced a new partnership with Encyclopedia Britannica to bring Britannica Online answers directly within the Bing search results:

The answer provides a quick overview of the subject, a thumbnail image, and useful facts and figures making it easier than ever to get trusted content in search.

The results also include links to other trusted sources, ie: Wikipedia, Freebase, and Qwiki.  The answers appear inline, and you may have to scroll down a bit to see them:

Quite a useful tool if you’re doing school research or need to expand your encyclopedic knowledge!
