If you need information on a topic, whether it's for an informative, persuasive, or argumentative paper / speech, there are two database that are good starting points for choosing and narrowing your topic. 

  • CQ Researcher
  • Opposing Viewpoints.

A quick keyword search in either of these databases brings up short but comprehensive reports on topics.

These are particularly good sources since each report on a topic includes background and chronology, an assessment of the current situation, tables and maps, pro/con statements from representatives of opposing positions, and bibliographies of key sources. 

In addition, finding current newspaper, magazine and journal articles, many of which include the full-text of the article, is very easy in a database like Academic Search Premier.
