Database of the Week – Issues and Controversies

The library subscribes to over 100 different databases indexing and providing content in all disciplines – from law to health to psychology to communications. Most FSC students are familiar with Academic Search Premier, one of the largest inter-disciplinary databases. BUT we’re also going to start a new weekly feature on this blog, highlighting one of our other databases with which students and faculty might not be as familiar.

This week: Issues and Controversies

Need to write a “position” paper, arguing for or against a particular issue? Issues and Controversies helps researchers understand the crucial issues we face today, exploring more than 800 hot topics in business, politics, government, education, and popular culture. Updated weekly, with links to a 12-year archive, Issues and Controversies offers in-depth articles made to inspire thought-provoking debates.

This database is GREAT for research papers and debate prep!
