Pro/Con Issues

This guide is intended to help you research topics of controversy. Since classes in various disciplines often have assignments of this nature, this library guide is intended to be multidisciplinary.


This Pro/Con library guide includes links to various resources that can help you with your research whether you're looking for books, e-books, streaming video, encyclopedia or journal articles.  Additionally, there is a Citation Aid guide below with information and links concerning best practices in citation as well as tutorials in conducting research.
