Country Studies

This guide contains library resources on Country Studies as well as links to internal and external sources on the topic, including additional sources on "Estudios de los Países" in Spanish.

Search Resources

Type your search terms into the "search resources" box on the Nancy Thompson Learning Commons home page to access WorldCat Discovery. WorldCat Discovery is the gateway to the print library books, e-books, government documents, videos, and even some articles. Although Kean's holdings will come up first in the search, you will also learn about library holdings worldwide. 

In order to check out print books from the Main Collection, please bring your Kean Photo ID to the Circulation Desk. 

Search the E-Book Databases

While e-books are accessible through WorldCat Discovery, another option is to search directly in the e-book databases listed below. 

Working from off campus? If so, you will need to log in with your Kean Google username and password.

Request Books from Other Libraries through Interlibrary Loan

Books or journal articles not owned by the Nancy Thompson Learning Commons may be requested from other libraries through interlibrary loan. Patrons will be notified by e-mail when books are ready to be picked up at the Circulation Desk. Books will be due back to the Learning Commons by the specified due date. Copies of articles and book chapters will be emailed to the patron. Select the appropriate form from the page linked below, then complete and submit the form online.
