Yearbooks come out on an annual basis. Hence the term YEAR-book, or yearly book. The most common yearbook is that which comes out each year to update a set of encyclopedias. Britannica, for instance, has a very famous yearbook.

Yearbooks may also come out in specific subject areas, rather like almanacs.
