Opposing Viewpoints & Points of View Ref Center

This week there’s been some confusion about whether or not the library still subscribes to the database Opposing Viewpoints.  The good news is yes we do!  And the even better news is that we have acquired an additional database similar to Opposing Viewpoints, EBSCO’s Points of View Reference Center.  Both databases provide full text articles, eBooks, video clips, and other information helpful to students preparing current events speeches, papers, and debates.  A common feature of both resources is the consideration of a topical issue, e.g., gun control, and presents  each side of an argument with supporting data.

Opposing Viewpoints
A database that is helpful for writing critical essays, researching reports or term papers, or preparing for a debate, or just the latest information on hot topics.
