Online Tools for Assignment

Introduce useful online tools that may help to prepare your assignment.


Passport is a database subscribed by the library which provides data and insight on various industries and worldwide economies.

We recommend users start their searching with the Search All Categories pull-down menu, which would be an easier way to explore the information available in Passport.

  1. Pick up a topic from the pull-down menu under Search All Categories, e.g. industries, and then click on GO.

  2. Search topics by keyword. Check the box(es) for the topics(s) you are interested in.

  3. Click on Select Geographies, then search or browse the countries or regions you are interested in.  And then click on  SEARCH >  on the top right corner.

  4. You can then view the statistics by clicking on the Statistics tab, or read the report by clicking on the Analysis tab.
