Searching Databases for Country-Specific Information
Most subject-specific databases include coverage of specific country information, so you can select appropriate topical databases using the Research Guides by Subject and the search for your country and topic within those databases.
When an item has a specific-country focus, many databases indicate the country in the subject search (sometimes called the descriptor or subject heading), but others use a specific geographic label you can use to search for country information; this may be presented in a drop-box or on an Advanced Search screen. Use that label to include specific countries in your search. Here are some primary databases and a listing of the "fields" in which they list the country information:
