The BC is excited to have you explore globalization more concretely.  So we offer two choices.

1)      Explore a company (or other organization, for example maybe an NGO [Greenpeace, Amnesty International, a labor union] or a political party) and see what you can dig up about how they have been affected for better or worse by globalization.

2)      Explore a country and see what you can dig up about the impact of globalization.

To get better at using information resources, Jordi, me, has added that you should start your digging by using the “Research by Subject”pages at our library.  There are several subjects that might be interesting.  These include, but are not limited to, management, economics, international affairs, sociology, and anthropology.  Each page has tabs that lead to specific resources, such as reference sources or Internet sources.  One option would be to use the newspaper databases (usually Lexis-Nexis) and to look for news from a foreign newspaper.

Make a quick reference in your post, even at the end, to what you used.
