Answer

Alabama Virtual Library (http://www.avl.lib.al.us) includes two databases that may be helpful.

Opposing Viewpoints in Context (http://ic.galegroup.com/ic/ovic/?userGroupName=avl_hunts) is a Gale database that allows access to thousands of viewpoint articles, topic overviews, statistics, primary documents, links to websites and full-text magazine articles.

Points of View Reference Center (http://web.ebscohost.com/pov/search?sid=edad7386-e5ec-45c4-bdc6-e35b05d0cc5d%40sessionmgr115&vid=1&hid=107) is a database from EBSCO that provides access to controversial essays and articles presenting multiple sides of a current issue as well as essays presenting material for further study.

The Alabama Virtual Library is available free of charge to all Alabama residents, courtesy of the Alabama Legislature. If you cannot access the AVL, visit your local public library for a username and password.
