Our Opposing Viewpoints database is specifically designed for researchers who looking for pro and con viewpoints on current issues. You can search for your topic by keyword, or click on "Browse Issues" to see a master list of controversial topics. Opposing Viewpoints contains many types of sources - newspaper, magazine, and academic journal articles; images, audio transcripts, and videos; and "Viewpoint" articles which are reprints or excerpts of articles that were originally published in a print source, then republished in a print book series, and finally reproduced as a database article. 

The SIRS Knowledge Source database also has a "Pro & Con" section of topics that will lead you to some useful sources.  

Our Multi Subject databases also provide information on many subjects, but are not arranged in a pro and con format. You can access these by choosing "Multi-subject" from the "Subject" drop-down menu on the "Database" page.

You can access these databases on or off campus. When you click a link to an HCC Library database from off-campus, you will be taken to a login page where you need to enter your HCC "W" number (for students) or your first and last names (for faculty/staff) and personal password. Once you've done this and successfully authenticated, you are redirected to the database.
