Are you confused about Egypt, Libya and Bahrain?

There is a lot happening in the world right now and it can be difficult to get a good grasp of international news and politics. There are some great web resources that provide a balanced explanation of the country and region so that you can better understand what is happening right now.

BBC Country Profiles

CIA World Fact Book

For even more in depth information check out the Country Studies page on the library main page> Select a Course Subject> Country Studies.

Two great databases are Global Researcher, which gives you updated information on current events and CultureGrams, which gives you a cultural overview of a country. If you are off campus, you will need to sign in with your Pipeline info when prompted.

If you need help finding more resources, come visit a librarian at the Reference desk on the 1st floor.
