Looking for a database to help you find contrasting ideas about a topic? Try searching Opposing Viewpoints in Context. You will find it on the Library’s alphabetical list of databases webpage http://www.volstate.edu/Library/Alphabetical.php. The database is also listed on the “Current Events” and “Persuasive” subject database webpages.
It’s a good idea to search more than one database. CQ Researcher and ProQuest may have the information you need. Happy searching!
Need a textbook? Several instructors provide the Library with a copy of textbooks. The textbooks are “on reserve”, and may be used in the Library for up to 2 hours. The libraries at Highland Crest, Livingston and the Main Campus have textbook titles. You may want to check the Thigpen Library online catalog course reserves for your course since all textbooks are not available.
We hope your semester is off to a good start! Librarians are available to help you with research…
Welcome to a new semester! The Thigpen Library has a different look on the web. See the changes… http://www.volstate.edu/library. We hope it will be easier to find books, articles, videos and research help online.
Best wishes for a very successful semester!

The Tennessean database is up and running. There was a technical error…
A special “Thanks” to those who called Reference to report the problem. The TN Electronic Library (TEL), which funds our access, got the problem fixed.
