World Geography and Culture is the definitive resource for the study of countries, cultures, and geography concepts and skills. Every country of the world is profiled in depth, covering all aspects of its geography, history, society, and culture. 

In addition to the great research databases provided by the state and county, students now have access to a comprehensive collection of reference databases from Infobase. Through July 1st, users can access this collection of history, geography, medical, literature, and current issues databases for free.

Although some of the resources, like the World Almanac for Kids Elementary and Video on Demand: Just for Kids, can be used by younger students, much of the collection is geared toward research for middle school, high school and college students.

Students writing research papers are encouraged to explore the databases to learn more about key issues, current and historical events, and comprehensive subject coverage.
