Culturegrams is a good place to start your research on culture in other countries. To find it:

  1. Click on the Research Databases icon on the homepage, then select the C from the alphabetical list.
  2. Select the Culturegrams link from the list.
  3. In the search box enter the name of the country you are researching.
  4. Various aspects of culture are broken down on the left side of the country page.

Need to find more information on a specific cultural topic?

Try one of our other databases, like ProQuest, using more specific terms.

Copy and paste the searches below into the search box, inserting the name of the country you're researching in place of the text in the parenthesis.

(insert the name of your country) AND "business practices" AND communication

(insert the name of your country) AND "business culture" AND etiquette

(insert the name of your country) AND "business culture"

The quotation marks tell the database to search for the terms as a phrase.

Additional resources include Gale Diversity Studies when you're looking to research cultural differences, contributions, and influences in the global community.

Also World History in Context is a great choice for researchers as it provides both an overview of a topic and allows you to conduct in-depth research.
