Database of the Week

CQ Researcher

Need to research a controversial topic? Need something more reliable than Wikipedia? Go to CQ Researcher, one of the Library's academic databases, free for all SWC students.

Access is available from off-campus, go to the Library's Articles and Databases page, select "CQ Researcher," and enter your username (WebAdvisor ID) and password (birth date).

This weekly, full-text publication provides original in-depth analysis of the most current major and controversial issues of the day with complete summaries, pros and cons, bibliographies, and more.

Read about current issues of the day, such as the recent report on "Air Pollution and Climate Change," published on November 13, 2015.

Fossil Fuels Supply Most U.S. Energy

Or go back through the archives of the CQ Researcher database for reports that provide a snapshot in time, such as "Should the U.S. reinstate the draft?" published in 1991.

CQ Researcher is a great starting place for your research about a controversial issue.
