Use U.S. History in Context and Science in Context to research any of the aspects of this assignment: The automobile, Internet, telephone, or computer.

You might also be successful by searching within U.S. History in Context the two time periods referenced in this project: The 1920s and/or 1990s.  You can link to the "units" on these time periods by finding the section on the database home screen called Events, Decades, and Cultural Trends.  Because you are searching for a.) information about these inventions AND b.) their impact on humanity, searching in both contexts (item AND time period) will yield more relevant results.   

Cars, Radio, Computers, and the Internet
