New Database – Nations and Cultures: A to Z

Greenwood Library is pleased to make available to the Longwood community a unique database from World Trade Press.  “A to Z” is a survey of world nations and their cultures, with an added emphasis on business culture within different nations.  Each country’s profile provides detailed coverage of more than 100 topics each, including the nation’s culture, currency, economy, food, greetings, holidays, human rights, language, stereotypes, weather, and much more.  

You can access it from within Databases A – Z (which is linked from the library’s homepage), or directly here (requires Lancernet ID and password for off-campus access).

Changes to Films on Demand links

For faculty linking to or embedding video from the Films on Demand database: the URLs will be changing this week and you will need to update your links.

While the old URLs will still work, they direct users to a general index page from which they must browse to the desired title. To include a link, find the video or clip you wish from the database and scroll to the bottom of the page. Select the URL and place that link in Canvas.

As always, if you need help, please don’t hesitate to ask us!
