Understanding the world of politics, and how it affects us on a local and global level, can be a daunting task to keep up with. Your library would like to help you make sense of all this by making use of a new database, offered on a trial basis, called World Politics Review. Its mission is to publish “in-depth news and expert analysis on global affairs to help readers identify and make sense of the events and trends shaping our world.”
Available through June 30, 2024, you may access this database by visiting us online at www.abilenetx.gov/apl/Databases and it will be featured at the top of the page. Once you click on the available link, you will be asked to create a free account that you will continue to use to sign-in to this particular database in the future.
Once you’ve logged in, you’ll be provided with the latest information, news, commentary, and information on what is happening in the world around you. A great section to browse is the “Daily Review” option, provided each weekday to give a rundown of the day’s top global news and their later expert analysis. However there’s a wealth of additional information you may search through including briefings, columns, podcasts, or simply browse through a variety of categories by region or issue.
With World Politics Review, you’ll be provided with all-access to:
- Immediate access to a full searchable library of tens of thousands of articles.
- Daily articles with original analysis, written by leading topic experts.
- In-depth articles with deep dives into important issues and countries.
- Ad-free reading, multiple authentication methods, and more.
We invite you to try out the World Politics Review for yourself to see what value you can get from it. Stay informed on what’s going on in the world around you, whether it’s the stories that are making headlines or the often-ignored coverage of what’s happening in the corners of the world you might now keep up with. Understand the world around you, and how they affect U.S. interest so you can better find the signal within the noise of information.
