CultureGrams Database

By Marcia Lee
Serials Specialist

Here at the Library we have so many resources available that as a staff member who only started a little under 2 years ago, I continue to discover new ones on a continuous basis.  Today’s discovery was our CultureGrams database, a quick and easy way to access basic information about countries around the world and all of the 50 states.

Did you know that approximately 300,000 aborigines lived in Australia when the first Europeans arrived in the late 1700’s?

Or that it is seen as bad luck to shake hands in a doorway in Russia?

Or that Greenland’s national costumes worn for special occasions by men & women includes polar bear hides?

Included in the CultureGrams is a “Kids Edition”, which allows you to take a look at how daily life is for children around the world – how cool is that!?  The information provides learning opportunities about everything from the people and history to food recipes and animals found in the country.  So, whether you’ve got a class project to work on or are just curious about the world we live in check out CultureGrams!
