Credo Reference Online & CQ Researcher
Both of these resources are a good way to get started...
Original, comprehensive reporting on issues in the news. (Good for finding pro/con resources.)
Good Library Search
Search for an item at Good Library:
This search will get you both books and articles found in the library.
Use the facets (on the left side of the page) to limit your results like you want. It is common to limit by "article" and "full text".
You can ILL articles as well! We will email you the article.
You may find the EBSCO interface yields more specific results
With EBSCO, you can choose which databases you want to search. For your class, I would suggest the following...
Academic Search Premier
Communication & Mass Media Complete (for some topics)
ERIC (for some topics)
Health Source - Consumer Edition (for some topics)
PsycARTICLES (for all of your topics)
PsycINFO (for all of your topics)
Social Sciences Full Text - H.W.Wilson (for all of your topics)
SocINDEX with Full Text (for all of your topics)
Pay attention to the facets on the side. You can use them to change your results quickly.
You can InterLibrary Loan articles as well if we do not have the full text. The article will usually come in a day or two.
