Use these to get started

 You can explore any of these:

  • CQ Researcher - Find reports and analysis on a variety of current issues. Includes background information, pro/con debates, and a chronology of the issue.
  • Times Topics - Find New York Times coverage by topic. Each topic, from Facebook to global warming, includes breaking news, archival content, and multimedia.
  • Open Democracy - Find news analysis and debates related to human rights and democracy worldwide.
  • - This site is useful for looking at broad proponent/opponent issues of a topic. Keep in mind that almost all major topics have specific foci with multiple (more than two) proponent/opponent arguments. Look for current conversations (such as those found in LexisNexis--see links below) on your topics to help hone your own arguments with the use of research.

Use these to find news articles

  • Complete the Access World News Tutorial then go to Access World News to find articles from local (Arizona Daily Star), national, and international newspapers, and news transcripts and video clips; date coverage varies by news source.
  • Complete the Nexis Uni tutorial (formerly LexisNexis) then go to Nexis Uni to locate local, national, and international newspaper articles on your topic.
