Going Overseas: Welcome!

Learn about the land you will visit and its people

This research guide is designed to get you quickly to basic information about the country you will be traveling to and its people. All of these sources are ebooks, so you can easily get to the full text of the articles. In some of these, the best way to search them is by the name of the country you want to visit. In others, search for the name of a people group that inhabits that country. If one way to search doesn't work for you in a given source, try the other.

On this guide we also highlight Italy and Ireland, since so many Duquesne students travel to those countries when they study abroad.

To use any of these encyclopedias, you will need to enter your Multipass username and password when prompted.
