Library Databases

Some library databases can be used to help you find and choose a topic.  These databases will often present articles, videos and other information all in one place under one subject.  Rather than knowing a topic and then searching for information about it, these databases present the topics to you and then give you all the information about that topic.

Books in the Library Collection

The following series of books are designed especially for current and controversial issues.  Each book within a series addresses specific issues within the broad, overarching topic.  The links give you a current list of what the library has access to for that individual series.  To view more titles that can be requested on interlibrary loan, simply check the box in the results list to search Libraries Worldwide.
