New Database: CQ Researcher

Are you looking for quality information on a current events topic? If so, then the library has just the thing for you: CQ Researcher. This is an excellent resource for in-depth reports on a wide variety of subjects such as: health, social trends, criminal justice, international affairs, education, the environment, technology, and the economy. You can find it on the A-Z Database List.

As with most databases, you can use keywords to search for reports or you can browse for reports by topic.
Each report is broken down into several sections such as: background, pro/con, chronology, bibliography, etc. The pro/con section provides perspectives from opposing sides of the issue, which can be helpful if you're writing an augmentative paper. The bibliography section is a useful tool for locating additional sources on the topic.
CQ Researcher is a great place to start research on any current events topics. Check it out and let us know what you think. If you need assistance with this or any other library resource then contact us at 254 968-9249 or
