New Database: CQ Global Researcher
We now have a new database in GALILEO.
You might recall that we recently had a trial of CQ databases. We have now switched from CQ Researcher in print to CQ Global Researcher online, and actually saved some money in the process. This change was included in our 2009-10 budget calculations, as we determined which subscriptions we most needed to keep with our limited budget.
This resource will be valuable for research on current events or controversial issues.

Modeled after the award-winning CQ Researcher, CQ Global Researcher provides students with definitive, in-depth coverage of global affairs from a number of international viewpoints. Available exclusively online, CQ Global Researcher offers focused, readable, single-topic reports on vital world issues. Written by seasoned journalists with years of international experience, these reports make use of such popular sections as “current situation,” “pro-con,” and a new feature called “voices from abroad.” By exposing students to a wide range of viewpoints CQ Global Researcher provides a comprehensive snapshot of today’s most pressing issues. Each single-themed, 12,000-word CQ Global Researcher report is researched and written by an experienced observer of the given issue. The consistent, reader-friendly organization provides researchers with an introductory overview; background and assessment of the current situation; pro/con statements from representatives of opposing positions; chronology on the topic, followed by short features for extensive context; a sampling of related international perspectives; maps and graphs; bibliographies of key sources; next steps for additional reading; and author profiles.
