Simplify your search: Find credible sources for both sides of social and political issues

Climate change, the $15 minimum wage, the effects of junk food—there’s no shortage of debatable topics in the national conversation. Finding  trustworthy information and insights can bolster any side of an issue, but it can also be time consuming. Fortunately, our library subscribes to Gale In Context: Opposing Viewpoints to help you go into serious search mode and finding supporting facts and figures.

Debaters, researchers, and other argumentative folks will also appreciate a dedicated web portal focused on national topics as well as content on espionage, intelligence, and national security—over 300 profiles of federal agencies and special interest groups in all.
