Links to Get Started

Here you will find a collection of links organized by subject and issues to help you choose a controversy.

A note about online periodicals: Some of the online versions of newspapers and magazines that you may find useful in your research, such as the New York Times, Time Magazine, and Newsweek, require that you pay with a credit card in order to access articles in their archives. However, in many cases you do not need to pay to read these articles. As a student at the University of Iowa, you have free access to most of these articles through the Lexis-Nexis database.
