Highlighted Databases: Geography & Education

The Gottesman Libraries

The study of geography is about more than just memorizing places on a map. It's about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures that exists across continents. And in the end, it's about using all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together." -- Barack Obama

Geography is the study of places and the relationships between people and their environments, often taking into account the physical features of Earth and its atmosphere, as well as human activity and interactions. In July, we highlight research resources relevant to geography education to inform academic programs and current offerings.
