Answer

The two databases you should start with are Opposing Viewpoints and Sirs Researcher.  Both databases include topic links to articles that are both pro/con and allows you to also search using keywords. If you are searching the databases off-campus, you will be asked to log-in using your MC I.D. number.

Opposing Viewpoints is a complete one-stop source for information on social issues. Access viewpoint articles, topic overviews, statistics, primary documents, links to websites, and full-text magazine and newspaper articles.

Sirs Researcher is a general reference database containing thousands of full-text articles exploring social, scientific, health, historic, business, economic, political and global issues.

If you need further assistance, please contact the Reference Librarian at your campus library.
