Library acquires travel website

Online resource provides up to date info on 175 nations

The Okanagan Regional Library has acquired Global Road Warrior, an online resource offering country-by-country information on 175 nations and territories.

The database features over 6,500 color photos and 1,575 maps.  Topics include society and culture, travel essentials, business culture, communications and more. Created by an international team of researchers, cartographers and writers, the database is continually updated.

The ORL is proud to offer this rich, colorful content as a free service to library members who are researching cultural information, preparing to travel abroad and to students doing country reports. With Global Road Warrior, you can find accurate world data and become a roving globetrotter without leaving your desk.
