There are a number of resources available on people groups. However, not every obscure people will have much written about it. Here are a few suggestions:

1) The Joshua Project: an online database of unreached people groups

2) Operation World: an online website with people group information arranged by country

3) Ebsco Quick Search: a multidisciplinary database search in our library

  • Go to the home page.
  • In the top middle-right there is a heading that says "Collections." Click on this heading and then select "Databases" underneath "Electronic."
  • On this page, you will see the heading labeled "Featured Resources" in the middle. Under this heading, click on the option "Ebsco Quick Search." It may require you to log in to the proxy. If so, please use your Liberty username and password.
  • You will now be on the Ebsco search page. You can search for articles using these search bars.

4) The Ethnologue: an online site tracing the development of culture and language

5) Countrywatch: a library database explaining culture in various countries. Instructions are below.

  • Go to the library’s main page. In the top middle-right there is a heading that says "Collections." Click on this heading and then select "Databases" underneath "Electronic."
  • On the next page, click on the "C" under the heading "Browse by Letter," which is in the top left of the screen.
  • Next, find the database labeled "CountryWatch." This will be near the bottom-middle of the list of databases on this page. Click on it.
  • Once on the CountryWatch page, beside "Quicklinks," you will be able to select the country you are looking for and you will be directed to that country’s entry page. Here, you will see a list of articles to the left which include country, political, economic, social, and environmental overviews.

Please contact the library if you have further questions: (434) 582-2221.
