    because the issue must be socially complicated must have more than one point of view and probably stirs debates among people with opposing opinions Due to the controversy the media and sources that report on the current events of a social issue have difficulty reporting information that is completely objective that is without a subtle bias political beliefs or commercial interests Since it s almost unrealistic for journalism and the media to report information without some degree of media bias you should think and reflect about how accurate and fair the sources are presenting you with news If we measure the objectivity of the source by how accurate and fair that source presents information then we can learn about the many sides of an issue and its opposing points of view How do we distinguish between objective and unreliable sources Just because a news source is opinionated or espouses a possible agenda like a political leaning or corporate backing that does not mean it is unreliable But sources that show multiple views and allow rebuttals to their own stated opinions are more likely to provide a well rounded examination of current events and social issues As a researcher you should try to find those type of sources so that even if you re writing about your interpretation of an issue your viewpoint will present opinions that are well supported and aware of all the other points of view Links to databases featured in videos Opposing Viewpoints in Context Gale Virtual Reference Library CQ Researcher Mario Macias Comments Off on Research Therapy Controversial Topics Posted in research Research Therapy Uncategorized Tagged Controversial Topics CSUN Oviatt Library research Research Therapy Celebrate National Library Week with the Oviatt Posted on April 13 2015 This page was generated by the Oviatt Library Comments Off on Celebrate National Library Week with the Oviatt The Oviatt Library has several activities and offerings planned to celebrate National Library Week April 12 18 2015 To start overdue fines will be forgiven for current CSUN students with overdue books Simply bring your overdue items to the Guest Services Desk in the lobby and someone there will assist you in removing your fines Please see our National Library Week page for more details as some restrictions apply Also please be sure to visit the Oviatt Library s Favorite Book display in the Learning Commons Oviatt Library staff members have selected their all time favorite books You will be able to see what we are reading and have the opportunity to check out one of these titles as the books are on display While you are looking over our favorite books make sure you enter the drawing for a 50 Barnes Noble gift card The drawing is open to all current CSUN students Finally I Love the Oviatt temporary tattoos will be available in the Library lobby on Mon April 13 and Tues April 14 from 12 1 p m Please join us for the fun Coleen Martin Comments Off on
