Opposing Viewpoints Database
We’ve added a new database, Opposing Viewpoints. This is a great resource for students in grades 6 to college who need to do reports on current events or controversial issues, such as Drug Abuse or Pollution. The database provides different perspectives on the issues from a wide variety of sources including pro and con viewpoint articles, 140 full-text magazines, academic journals, newspapers, primary source documents, statistics, multimedia, web sites, and more.
This is one of the Gale databases, so it can be accessed in and outside the library both from the Gale Databases General link, and it also has its own link on the Online Resources page. While the interface is different from the other Gale databases, it should be easy to figure out and use. You can always call your branch's reference desk for more information or assistance.
