Are you looking for a paper topic? World News Digest, one of the library databases, has a list of research topics available. To get to the list, go to the list of library databases at http://library.waubonsee.edu/engine/55 and click on World News Digest. The list is alphabetical. Once you have entered World News Digest, click on the box in the upper right corner that says “Need a Research Topic?” to get to the list.
Click on a topic in the list to get a short description of the topic with some interesting questions about it. You will also get links to overviews of that topic and related articles. Topics include, but aren’t limited to: climate change, U.S. immigration policy, stem cell research, and capital punishment. This is a good way to get ideas for a topic, or to narrow a topic you already had in mind.
If you have any questions about library databases or need help selecting a topic, just ask a librarian!
