Intercultural Issues - Powers: Home

Research Guide for Prof. Powers Intercultural Issues class.


Welcome to the UML Libraries' LibGuide to Intercultural Issues!

This site has been created to facilitate discussion between Professor Powers' students and the library.

Our goal is to create a research library that consistently meets or exceeds your information needs. Your input is required in order for that to happen. Let us know which of these sites you find the most useful by leaving your comments. Also, let us know if you have found other sites you think should be listed here. Include a brief description of the site's contents and why you are suggesting it.

Please feel free to call or stop by the library if you have any questions or need any help with your research! You could either speak to me directly or ask any Reference Librarian. My number is listed on the side panel on the right side of this page and the number for the Lydon Library's reference desk is 978-934-3213. We are all here to help you!
