Database Spotlight: Global Issues in Context


The world is a curious place these days. We are interconnected in a way that we humans really haven’t been in our time here on Earth. And whether you have questions about something you read or saw in the news, or if you need reference materials for your school project, this is the place to get both.

Global Issues in Context offers 250 different country topic pages and more than 400 Issue pages.

There’s also Global Issues Viewpoints, which contains more than 3,000 exclusive commentaries that provide background and guidance on significant topics.

There is even a sidebar on the front page with ‘Featured News’ that pulls from both American and non-American sources.

It can be accessed from home on any computer or other device. And you can use it at any time. 2 pm or 2 am. Once you’ve found the information you need, not only can you download it as a PDF, it can also be transferred to your Google Drive or OneDrive so you can read it on the go.
