Beyond the Headlines and Sound Bites: Research the Issues at the Library

 Beyond the Headlines and Sound Bites: Research the Issues at the Library

Newspapers, the Web, radio and television cover the news in a timely way, but usually don't supply in-depth background, extensive discussion, or detailed information behind the controversies, opposing viewpoints and decisions a voter needs to make the most informed, careful choices.

With everything from wind farms and the nation's energy policy to the next representatives and voter initiatives on the ballot, it's helpful to know that you can find answers - and thought-provoking analysis of today's issues - at the library. Fill in the blanks and round out your understanding with books, magazine articles and other resources: Ask a librarian to help you find the answers you need.
