Background Information

Before you do any in-depth research, it is always beneficial to consult reference resources about your topic. We have an excellent database called CQ Researcher. It includes reports on current issues—including social trends—and has a wealth of information including historical background information, pro/con arguments, and bibliographies. Below is an image that shows details of a report about guns on campus - you can click the image to go to the CQ Researcher database.
