eHRAF World Cultures database offers information on different cultures and ethnic groups from around the world. Covers all aspects of cultural and social life such as beliefs, cultural practices, political structure, and settlement patterns. Each cultural profile consists of a "cultural summary" and a list of relevant full text sources. Users can search by keyword or browse by subject, region, or culture.
Search Strategy: keyword searching is possible; however, searching by subject terms will make your searching more precise, and enable you to retrieve more relevant articles. Try Arabs and culture, blacks and transcultural nursing, Hispanics and culture values, Chinese and transcultural care. More subject terms are provided below.
