Basic Approach to a Research Project

Databases Providing Background for Controversial Topics

The databases listed in this Research Guide are available only to Truckee Meadows Community College students, faculty and staff. You will need your TMCC credentials (Username and Password) to access them off-campus.


Opposing Viewpoints Reference Center

Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center is a more comprehensive database than CQ Researcher or Issues and Controversies.  It includes relevant chapters from reference books, opinion pieces from many sources, news articles, magazine articles, articles from refereed journals, statistics, and visual and audio media.  It too provides assistance in citing sources.  Off campus access requires a login ID and password -- see the librarian for assistance.
