Hello and welcome students to the William F. Maag Library at Youngstown State University!
I am Bob Ault the Information Services Librarian for the Department of Politics and International Relations
and Rigelhaupt Pre-Law Center. I greet your capstone class along with our Senior student assistant
Billy Maag, who has been a student here since 1976. He assures me that he has finally stopped changing
majors and should graduate this semester. . . or the next . . .
Due to the unique challenges we all are facing this year, feel free to contact me directly if you are having issues doing your research. I will generally be on campus Mondays and Thursdays and work remotely the other weekdays. We all have been experiencing technical difficulties as we transition to the online environment so remember that patience is a virtue, start early so you have time for changes. and may you have good results with your classes this fall.

Many students have found that this Maag Library database, Opposing Viewpoints in Context is a good place to start finding subjects and as the name implies, views from both sides of an issue.
Opposing Viewpoints in Context helps students research, analyze and organize a broad variety of data for conducting research, completing writing assignments, preparing for debates, creating presentations and more.
Resources are divided into topics which contains numerous full text pieces further categorized by the nature of their material: viewpoints (essays), reference, statistics, magazines and newspapers, images, primary documents and web sites. Give it a try!
