Library offers first-class ticket to see the world

The Okanagan Regional Library has acquired Global Road Warrior, an online resource offering country-by-country information on 175 nations and territories.

The database features over 6500 color photos and 1575 maps.  Topics include society and culture, travel essentials, business culture, communications and more. Created by an international team of researchers, cartographers and writers, the database is continually updated.

The ORL is able to offer this rich, colourful content as a free service to library members who are researching cultural information, preparing to travel abroad and to students doing country reports. With Global Road Warrior, you can find accurate world data and become a roving globetrotter without leaving your desk.

To grab your boarding pass, visit the library website at  www.orl.bc.ca and click on the ‘Reference and Research’ button.
