World Trade Press is a publisher specializing in international trade, logistics, and country data. They are now marketing their publications to academic institutions, and have given the Meriam Library trial access to two of their databases. The first is AtoZMapsOnline. This database is a collection of over 4,000 maps. Coverage is world-wide, and included are outline maps, political maps, physical maps, climate maps, thematic maps, and even antique maps.

The other database to which we have trial access is Global Road Warrior. This is a country database, and like other country databases it includes country facts covering geography, governments and the economy. It is intended to be used by international business travelers, though, and because of  this,  it features practical information not typically found in other country databases. For example, there is detailed information on society and culture -- things like superstitions, food and recipees, and stereotypes.
