Opposing Viewpoints is not available at MJC, but we have many other "Current Topics" database that can be found through "Find Articles" in the library homepage.  One of those is Issues & Controversies.

Once selecting "Find Articles," instead of navigating all 90+ databases, go to "Find Databases by Subject" then scroll to "Current Topics" and click.  The Facts of File databases and CQ Researcher are great ways to get background information and links to various topics.

Also, on the right hand side of the screen various research guides are included: these have been created by librarians on some of the most complex topics of the day.  They contain academic sources, websites, keywords, and research tips on a given topic.  

A link to the Current Topics and the Find Articles has been provided below.
