Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center
I’m very excited to introduce to you a new database that may sound familiar, the Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center. If you’ve used some of our Contemporary Issue books in the library, you’ll be happy to see this electronic database of some of the titles you are familiar with. You can search for information on a wide variety of current topics–from AIDS to Iraq to gangs and more. You can search your topic or select one from their list of popular topics. You can narrow your search by content level and content type (academic journals, statistics, primary sources, viewpoints and more). The Viewpoints tab will find full-text articles from different perspectives on your favorite topics.
This is the perfect database to use for those persuasive, pro/con or argumentative essays or speeches! You can access Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center either in the library or on any internet connection (with your login and password). Try it, you’ll like it!
