How do I research a controversial use of the Internet?

As there are many things controversial about the Internet, I am just going to suggest a few things that may be of interest to you: Children using Social Networking sites, a wide variety of pornography access online (some of it illegal), Internet Stalking, Privacy rights (which can be sub-divided into many topics such as who has the right to access another person's email, user privacy vs. company marketing tools, what should be accessible or not online), the use of Facebook content in legal proceedings, Internet Piracy, just to name a few.

Since your question does not specify what types of information you are looking for, I will suggest that you begin your search by choosing one of the above research topics and searching for articles in one of Baker's databases. You can access the databases from the library's homepage by clicking on the "Find Articles and Databases" link. From this, the Online Resources page, you can select a category to search. Depending on which topic you choose, there are different databases which may be better than others. However, you should be able to at least find some information by starting with the "General" category. These databases have a wide range of topics represented. I would suggest Academic OneFile and General OneFile to begin. Select one of these, then type your topic into the search box. Remember to make sure that the "Full Text" box is checked so that you will be able to access all of your results. You will need to know your 14-digit library barcode number to use the databases from off-campus, you can find this number on your ID card or in your SOLAR account.

If you would like additional assistance, please contact your Campus Librarian. Thank you for using the ASK US service.
