Check with Mr. Lee for your assignment requirements. This guide focuses on information about China, since it can be more difficult to find. Use the same databases listed below for articles about American culture to back up your thesis. Check the other resources on the Subject Guide to the Databases and eBooks on the library's web page for additional sources.

Information about nearly all the selected topics can be found in the library's databases, eBooks and books. It may be possible to get EBSCO articles that are not full-text through interlibrary loan. Ask a librarian for help! Mrs. Warburton and Mrs. Antoine would be glad to help you find what you are looking for.
