CQ Researcher, a database which provides reports on current controversial political and social issues, has just expanded its reach to include historical and international coverage of these issues. CQ Researcher Plus Archive can be used to examine controversial events all the way back to 1923. CQ Global provides articles with an international focus. All of these resources come in one database, CQ Researcher. Access it from the library web site’s Articles and More page at http://www.smumn.edu/sitepages/pid2564.php.

Watch for CQ’s Political Handbook of the World to be appearing online soon as well.
