US Elections 2008

 Throughout 2008, the media will be full of news about the US elections.  Firstly the selection of presedential candidates, and then the president him or herself.  The BBC has an excellent website for tracking the recent developments at US Elections 2008 but you could also check out what the American newspapers, such as the Washington Post or New York Times, are saying in Nexis UK.  Connect to Nexis from the Newspapers category in Metalib (you will need your Athens username and password) and then select ‘US News’ from the Sources drop down box to search across all  US news sources.  To select one source in particular, it is best to go to the ‘Sources’ tab and work through the numbered steps.

You can also find out about the road to the White House for George W Bush and past presidents through browsing the Politics section on Level 2.  Shelf numbers to browse include 324.73 or 329.0220973.
