Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center is now Opposing Viewpoints in Context

Opposing Viewpoints is a great resource for getting articles, opinion pieces and primary sources about different sides of controversial issues and contemporary hot topics. The database is making some major improvements and changing its name. How will it affect you?
  • More image, audio and audio-visual content. This content will be more fully integrated in with the text content.
  • Outdated content has been replaced with newer materials.
  • "Expert picks" to guide your reading.
  • Each topic has its own "portal page" with an overview of the issue to contextualize all the resources.
  • Text-to-speech and translate capability
  • Share what you find using Twitter, FaceBook, del.icio.us, digg and a variety of other Web 2.0 tools
As always, whenever you need to, there is the Help button, or you can Ask A Librarian!
