Don't forget to check out the "Global Issues In Context" database that we subscribe to. You can find it in the Visual Tab of your school library catalog. (In elementary schools, it is tucked away inside the "Other Online Databases" icon.) The search feature in GIIC will bring you current articles, video clips and backgrounder articles.
