Current Issues

These databases present many of the most popular contemporary issues, provide opposing viewpoints and context. For this assignment, you may need to do background research to understand why the work of the charity you chose is important and to make an argument in support of their work.

Evaluating Charities

Like other business, charities receive ratings that show how fiscally responsible they are and what impact funds donated to that charity have in the world. These websites will help you evaluate and find charities doing particular work.

General Databases

Search thousands of academic journals, narrowing parameters to focus on detailed aspects of your research project. For this class, you may not need these general resources, but they are a good resource if you need to do research on a social problem.
