Do you get reference questions involving international topics or events?
Information from IGOs (UN, main body, and agencies), NGOs (Amnesty International, Red Cross, etc.) and the official publications of other nations can provide the answers. Experts will explain the usefulness of these (mostly) free resources and teach strategies for finding them easily.
