  1. We would love for there to be citations generated for everything, like the maps, or the Did You Know? on the landing page...

    The maps and some of the information do not generate citations, so the students cannot cite the maps or the fun info on the main page.

  2. Search for countries by language

    As a teacher librarian, I promote CultureGrams to the world language teachers at my school. They often want students to do research on countries or people from countries where their target language is spoken. It would be very helpful for students to be able to search by language spoken. I think they would be surprised to see all the countries where French or Spanish is spoken.

  4. Make it easier to select countries during graph creation

    When creating a table, countries and attributes can be selected and de-selected using check boxes. When creating a graph, students have to use control-click to select choices. This is a real nuisance for kids using touch screens, and a stumbling block for everyone else. Can all country and attribute selection be made with check boxes? Thanks!

  7. Chinese Divisions(provinces, special administrative regions, municipalities, and autonomous regions) Edition

    It would be great if you had a Chinese Provinces edition, similar to the U.S. States and Canadian Provinces editions you already offer especially since China is a large and diverse part of today's world.

    We are in the process of updating our economics portion of the reports. The planned changes should address the suggestion proposed here.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts about how to improve CultureGrams.

  9. Holidays and Celebrations around the World

    It would be nice to have a section on holidays and celebrations around the world, and maybe even sorted out by month. This way they would be easy to compare instead of going country by country

  10. Make a topic filter for countries

    A feature where you can filter topics when searching for countries (ex: Religion, Art, Economy, History, etc.) This would make it easier to find articles about countries and to find specific articles about certain topics about that country.

  13. Include a quick-reference comparison to the US dollar in "Money/Economy"

    1) I like how the Kids Edition includes a link to "Money and Economy" - could the World Edition's "Economy" link also say "MONEY"? Some of my students switch between the two editions to find all their info.
    2) While I know not all users are in the United States, would it be possible to include a quick-reference within the Money link that shows how that country's currency compares to one U.S. dollar? My language teachers like to ask students to find that more often than extensive economic information.

  14. Languages other than English

    Have you considered making Culture Grams available in other languages (particularly Spanish?) There are some World Language teachers at my school who prefer their students to do research in the languages they're learning.

  15. Biographies/Famous People

    Will you please add a page for famous people and animals? My fourth grade students need this information for their research. Please note, I am not looking to duplicate the biographical databases. I am simply looking for a paragraph or two about famous people or animals. Of course, biographies would be welcome too.

  17. We would like the ability to import citations to Noodletools.

    Noodletools has a direct import to all Gale products. It is a nice feature and very helpful.

  18. More audio files

    I noticed you have audio files that play foreign terms for some countries. It would be nice if you could add these to all of the countries.

  19. Regional info

    Please add more information on all regions, since that is the primary way in which we teach world geography. We don’t have time to get down to the country level, except to use as examples.

  20. States and Provinces photo galleries

    It seems like you should have photo galleries for all of your editions, not just World and Kids. Students would like to be able to see photos of their state.
