What's new this week? Controversial Issues.

Good morning everyone. Today I'm introducing two of our controversial issue databases, CQ Researcher and Opposing Viewpoints in Context. Here are their quick links:

In Opposing Viewpoints, I entered into the search bar "counseling" and got a result page that includes videos, points of view, audios, and articles such as Hollywood's One-Sided Narrative on 'Conversion Therapy' (2019). Here's the direct link:

In CQ Researcher, I entered the same search and found the 2019 report Abortion Controversies. Here's the link:

Please explore these helpful databases for any subject that catches your interest.


How did I get there? From the NVU Libraries home page at select Databases A-Z and then either CQ or Opposing Viewpoints.
