"Global Issues in Context is a well-structured and diverse database that contains international viewpoints on a broad spectrum of global issues. It is highly used at the University of Balamand mainly by the English Program faculty and students since information literacy librarians promote it in the customized library sessions that are delivered to the English 101 sections every semester. The sessions are designed around a topic that students need to research using the provided databases in order to fulfill their assignments. In addition, English professors instruct students to use Global Issues in Context for their papers in other courses such as English 102 and intensive English. There are many reasons why the database works well for them:
It contains a list of current and updated topics that students can browse and choose from.
All topics are listed under a broader subject or discipline.
The results display is user friendly and divided into categories (viewpoint, reference, magazines, news, etc.)
The database has articles from different points of view in each category.
Articles are short and easy to read and understand which is suitable for freshman and sophomore students.
Also, librarians use it to help students find a topic to work on in the Library Use and Research Methods class. We highly recommend Global Issues in Context for any university or college since it is a general database for early academic level, it tackles students need directly by offering hands-on topics and information from different perspectives and in many formats."
