Global Road Warrior

Global Road Warrior logo

The Library is trying out a new online resource for country information: Global Road Warrior. Global Road Warrior is a world-class e-content database offering country-by-country information on 175 nations and territories. It features more than 8 million words of editorial content, over 6,500 color photos and 1,575 maps, all presented in a consistent 92-category framework for each country. Categories include: Society and Culture, Business Culture, Travel, Maps, and Photos.

Created by an international team of researchers, cartographers and writers, Global Road Warrior is continually updated. This database is valuable to multiple educational disciplines and promotes cross-cultural understanding through comparative studies. Global Road Warrior is a great source for students who are preparing to study or travel abroad.

Global Road Warrior is available via computers on campus or through the library proxy server. Users can also connect to Global Road Warrior and other electronic journals through the Electronic Resources page on the library site.

Check out Global Road Warrior and let us know what you think!

Next steps for NextGen Melvyl

The University of California Libraries are moving to a new stage in evaluating the Next Generation Melvyl Pilot catalog system.

The current version of Melvyl will still be available, and you may wish to bookmark it using this link.
