Did you know that one of the most important things that is noticed in a typical German business meeting is the type of pen a person uses?
I learned this through one of our newest library resources, the Global Road Warrior database. This database focuses on information about the various countries of the world. Going beyond the statistical and factual, the GRW provides information on etiquette, currency, food, holidays, almost everything a student would need to know about the country, all located in one spot.
Culinary Arts-The database contains information related to the cuisine of various countries. Specific examples and pictures are provided. There are also recipes from the various countries. I have linked to many of these pages through our Library Guides tool on the Culinary Arts guide- World Regional pages.
Digital Media and Entertainment Technology-The information about business etiquette and customs will be useful to our students as they enter the workforce. Also, there is detailed and specific information regarding different media outlets in various countries.
Interiors-The database has information and photographs on various architectural sites and points for each country. This is found under ‘points of interest.’
