Try looking at our EBSCO databases! You can do a quick search from the library homepage by going to tncc.edu/library and on search box (right below the pictures) click the tab that says "Find Articles". In the search box on that tab, you can type what your looking for. After you click search, the EBSCO page should open up with a list of articles containing those words. From here you can refine your search if needed. To limit the dates to only articles from the last year change the date to "2015" in the first box under "Publication Date" on the left hand side of the screen, about halfway down the page. You can also add additional terms in the boxes at the top if you want to narrow it down, or remove terms if you aren't getting enough results.

You can also try looking at our Opposing viewpoints database for resources on current events topics. From the library homepage, go to the "Favorite resources" tab of the search box. Then click on "Opposing Viewpoints in Context". Then type your search terms in the search box on the Opposing Viewpoints page. The results are divided by resource types: check the news category for recent articles, academic journals or magazines for more in-depth articles, and reference for more overviews. You can also find audio, video and statistics on this database.

I hope this helps you get started on your search! If you have any other questions or need more help, please feel free to contact us again, call us, or visit the library research help desk.
