Researching Controversial Issues

You may be asked to support one side of a controversial issue or to present both sides.  These two databases present information on topics frequently discussed in news outlets.  When you see something of interest, note the terminology that is used in the discussion.  Try to isolate key concept words or key phrases to use when searching the online catalog and other electronic databases.
