Question: China and India are two key economies of concern when dealing with globalization issues. How can I find good background information as well as useful current information to better acquaint myself with these two countries?

Answer:  The Catherwood Library provides information specific to these two countries. A focus on these two countries appear under our Course Guides. These are generic guides that provide exactly the kind of information you are seeking.

If you couple the above two guides with our special subject guide called
INTERNATIONAL/GLOBAL http://www.ilr.cornell.edu/library/research/subjectGuides/internationalGlobal.html , you will find a wealth of useful information in the context of globalization.
