A good place to start would be our Research LibGuide. It will walk you through how to identify a topic, narrow it down, and find information from different types of sources. Just go through the tabs from left to right and it will give you some guidance from start to finish.

There are databases specifically for researching controversial topics.

  • Opposing Viewpoints
  • SIRS Issues Researcher
  • Issues and Controversies
  • CQ Researcher


Visit the tutorials guide for tips on searching and navigating the various databases.
