New! Food and Travel Databases
Summit County Library is pleased to announce that it has added 5 new databases for all of you travel lovers and foodies! Anyone can access these 5 free databases using the library’s computers, or from anywhere in the world from the library’s website at www.summitcountylibraries.org with their Summit County library card. Visit Research and choose A-Z for Alphabetical sorting or Subject and find them under Food, Travel & Language Learning.
Contains more than 2,000 state, regional, and ethnic recipes—including food culture articles—as well as historical and reference articles including an ingredients section. AtoZ Food America is the largest food database of its kind focused solely on diverse American cuisine.
Contains more than 7,000 traditional recipes from 174 countries, along with thousands of ingredient, food culture, and reference articles, making it the largest food database of its kind. Covers food culture in six categories: National Cuisine, Regional Cuisine, Daily Meals, Dining Etiquette, Special Occasion Foods, and Food Trivia.
The world’s largest database of downloadable, royalty-free maps for student and library patron use. More than 100,000 maps are available in 48 categories.
Includes 121 topics for 175 countries. Starting with a country snapshot and cultural overview, topics include: climate; food and recipes; history; language; maps; money and much more. AtoZ World Culture was designed for researchers, educators, travelers, global businesses, government agencies and anyone who wants to learn about the world and its diverse cultures. It includes teaching tools and lesson plans for educators.
Contains country guides for each of 175 countries worldwide. Each guide covers 119 topics including culture, banking, business, demographics, education, food, history, holidays and festivals, travel, language, money, points of interest, religion, security, and national symbols.
The Summit County Library strives to deepen its coverage of topics that are of interest to its diverse population of patrons. They hope that these five products of World Trade Press, The Global Knowledge Company, does just that.
