Helpful Hints & Web Sites

There are many places to find information on specific countries. Ask for the Library's handout "Where in the World" for a quick guide to country call numbers in history and travel. In addition to books, you can find information in magazine articles, encyclopedias and on the web.

Researching from home? You will need your library card to access full text articles and online encyclopedias. Some good sources for country information are  General Onefile and Expanded Academic ASAP, SIRS, and Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia. Check either A-Z Resources or Subject Guides.
