NWPL offers 13 databases that provide access to information ranging from local to all over the world.
The newest database is A to Z the World, a comprehensive database that contains just about anything you would want to know about almost every country in the world. Information on history, culture, business, education, infrastructure, healthcare, language, human rights, food, security and many other categories can be found.
It’s a great tool for the academic, business professional, researcher and traveler, as well as those who are just interested in learning about other countries. A to Z the World can be accessed at the NWPL from one of the public computers or via the website from your home computer.
