Web site of the Week: ProCon.Org

Found via Flickr


The library subscribes to a database called Opposing Viewpoints that is really helpful for finding information on controversial issues.  However, sometimes it can be hard to think of a topic or lay out your argument for a persuasive paper.  Procon.org can help you.  You can either select a topic from the homepage or type in a subject to search.  From there you can choose to look at the top ten arguments for the topic or delve deeper into the issue.  It even has a page that shows you how to cite your work.

Web site of the Week: Learn Genetics


This site helps to “provide accurate and unbiased information about topics in genetics, bioscience and health.”  Topics include stem cells, addiction, DNA, and more.  This site also contains interactive tools and tutorials.  My favorite is called “Cell Size and Scale” which visually compares objects to show how tiny cells really are.
