New Research Tools

Recently added to Langsdale's suite of research databases are Opposing Viewpoints and historical coverage from 3 major newspapers: the New York Times (1851-2003), Wall Street Journal (1889-1989) and the Washington Post (1877-1990).

Opposing Viewpoints covers social issues, such as gun control, genetic engineering, censorship, endangered species, and terrorism. Each issue in the Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center contains a collection of materials on a topic, including viewpoint articles, contextual topic overviews, government and organizational statistics, biographies of social activists, court cases, profiles of government agencies and special interest groups, newspaper and magazines articles, as well as links to more than 1,800 reviewed and subject-indexed web sites.

And stay tuned for more. Langsdale plans to add even more new databases in July.
