Global Issues in Context
EKU Libraries are providing access to a new database: Global Issues in Context
Designed to support global awareness and the development of critical thinking and information literacy skills, Global Issues in Context (GIC) empowers users with the tools they need to understand today’s world issues from a global perspective.
GIC uses a wealth of resources (including magazine and scholarly journal articles, eBooks, statistics, images, videos, maps, and podcasts) to explain the historical and contemporary conditions necessary to understand global issues, conflicts and events. It supports research in virtually every corner of the library and in a wide variety of subject areas, including sociology, current events, civics, politics, science, economics, cultural/religious studies, women’s studies, human rights, English composition and many more.
