PointsOfView.jpgI attended a Minitex webinar on Points of View Reference Center (http://www.lib.umn.edu/indexes/moreinfo?id=16002). It is an ebsco product and brings together "an overview (objective background/description), point (argument),counterpoint (opposing argument), and Critical Thinking Guide" to common "paper topics."

I wonder if there is a way to bring together this and CQ Researcher to form some sort of "paper topic" page so students could click on a topic and get directly into on of these "reports." Seems like it would be a good place to explore or get background information.

What do you think? Do we need stuff organized by "topic"? Maybe for first year writing?

At College Library (the undergraduate library at UW-Madison) they do something similar: http://www.college.library.wisc.edu/services/reference_research_help/guides.shtml

This might be a model for us going forward...it could be unique content for the UGVL.

Hi Jon,
Yes, that is exactly what I was thinking of. I go back and use those pages all the time. I am wondering if we should/can create something similar...
