Welcome to the HCCC Libraries' LibGuide for Culture and Values!  Click any of the links listed to the left for research help.

Culture and values are the foundations of any society. They shape the way that people think, act and interact with each other. Culture is a set of shared values, beliefs, and ideas that are passed down from generation to generation. Values are the moral principles that guide our behavior and beliefs. They are what drive us to do the right thing and to live a life of meaning and purpose. In order for a society to maintain stability and progress, its citizens must be deeply rooted in its culture and values.
