This guide will help you with using one of LAVC Library's most popular databases: Opposing Viewpoints in Context. Use the blue tabs on the left-hand side of the guide (or the buttons at the bottom of each page) to navigate.

Opposing Viewpoints in Context is a great database for researching current, controversial social issues. In addition to full-text magazine, newspaper, and academic journal articles, you will also be able to find pro/con viewpoint essays on these controversial issues.

Opposing Viewpoints is often used in conjunction with another one of LAVC Library's popular databases: CQ Researcher. For help with using CQ Researcher, please refer to our guide. LAVC librarians recommend using both Opposing Viewpoints and CQ Researcher if you are researching current, controversial social issues.

Heads up: If you are using the Library website from off-campus, you will be asked to "log in" at some point. Please follow these directions for logging into the Library website from off-campus.
