Contents of this Guide

The AHC librarians have put together this LibGuide to help you use library resources for an argumentative or persuasive research project. Please ask us for help - that's why we are here! Hours and contact information are on the right side of this page.

This guide covers the following areas: print books, other print sources, online books, online articles, and other online sources (which can be navigated by the tabs at the top of the guide).


How to begin

Before you begin using the library resources for your research take some time to review the guide on the Research Process.

Make sure you understand your instructor's expectations and know who your audience is. Start thinking about what kind of information is needed to complete your assignment - statistics, illustrations, opinions, historical or current information?

The resources in this guide were selected by your librarians because they have proved to be valuable to students who are researching social and controversial issues. Good luck!
