UWRT 100 Critical Reading & Writing: Articles

This guide points to library resources and databases for topic research in this class

Finding Topic Ideas

Browse through these database sites to get topic ideas. SIRS KnowledgeSource has hundreds of possible topics. Opposing Viewpoints also has a list of topics. Explore the topics in CQ Researcher as well.

Finding Articles

The library has many databases that have scholarly, newspaper, and magazine articles.

Tip: You must access the databases through the library website. If you go to Google and find an article you like and it asks you to pay for it, DO NOT pay for it. It is probably in our databases or you can get the article for free through our interlibrary loan services.
