Today you’re here to do some research connected to your novel.
One great database is Global Issues in Context, found in the Virtual Library. It is password-protected when you’re at home so make sure you know where to find them in the Virtual Library. (Hint: look for the Orange Passwords Icon)
An external source that provides a good, neutral overview of countries and their history, political situations, etc is the CIA World Factbook.
As a reminder, it’s a good idea to keep track of your information and the sites you use so that you are easily able to format your Works Cited page in MLA.
