Suggested Strategies

For this project, Dr. Waugh suggests that you begin with Britannica and Global Issues In Context. As you research more deeply, use the other databases to expand your knowledge. The Historical Newspaper database will be useful for primary source accounts of events, as well as general news coverage. 

In Context Databases
