DATABASE SPOTLIGHT
 
Our World Geography and Culture Online database is a comprehensive resource that makes it easy to study all aspects of a country - from its geography and physical features to its government, people and society. The site provides both facts at a glance and in-depth coverage for more than 200 countries. Profiles of all 50 states are included featuring geographical features, maps, flags, government information, chronology and images. The site also features a Compare and Rank tool that allows countries or states to be compared by size, median household income, federal aid, energy consumption and more. The site's interface is easy to navigate making it ideal for social studies projects and general research. World Geography and Culture Online can be found on the library's Online Resources page.

Sam Daley-Harris: Writing Checks, Signing Petitions, and Protest Marches: Is That All There Is?
Has this election left you hungry to have a bigger voice in our democracy? Are you frustrated by the usual options you see? Are you wondering if that's all there is? In this talk, author Sam
Daley-Harris shows that there's actually much more. For Daley-Harris, the key is connecting with an organization committed to helping dissolve the powerlessness, but that's not an easy task. Join him as he guides us around the pitfalls and on a path to making a profound difference on issues like getting money out of politics, climate change, ending global and domestic poverty, and ending mass incarceration.
