Online Library Resources for Travel to the Developing World
In addition to the resources listed on your worksheet, the library has several very good resources that are available for your individual countries.
Your presentation needs pictures. Start in the menu above under Library Resources>MPC Databases>Britannica Image Quest. (Get the Password Bookmark from your Librarian or the Circulation Desk)
Go to the Virtual Library Page under Library Resources>Virtual Library
In QuickFINDS under Images choose Pics 4 Learning and Countries
Still, in QuickFINDS under information, start with ProQuest CultureGrams. Choose World Edition and see if your country is listed.
For additional information, or if your country isn’t listed in CultureGrams, choose Britannica and select the High School level. Other levels will not have as much information on your country.
For more detailed information, use the Search function instead of QuickFINDS. But don’t forget to select the grade level FIRST.
Here you can find the CIA World Fact Book, Foreign Language News and Newspapers, Research Success 2017, Unesco, World Bank Databank, and the World Health Organization.
Back here at mpclibrary.ca choose Library Resources>MPC Databases>Modern World History Online. You can research your individual countries for ideas for slides 11-14. On the country page, skip to the bottom for modern history.
For current events in your country choose Library Resources>MPC Databases>Advance Placement Database. You can limit your search to newspaper articles only on the left side, for example.
