Do you need access to reliable, high quality reference material fast? If so, Chesnutt Library has a solution to your last minute research needs. CQ Researcher provides balanced, comprehensive coverage of important current events. Each issue of CQ Researcher contains background information, viewpoint articles, charts and graphs, and a source list for further research. CQ Researcher’s “In the News,” section provides up-to-date information on issues covered in recent reports. Frequently covered topics include public policy, public opinion, economics, education, environment, government and law. CQ Researcher publishes 44 reports per year and provides access to reports from 1991 to the present. Reports can be browsed by date or topic. The CiteNow feature provides customized APA, Bluebook, Chicago, or MLA citations. This database also has a feature that allows you to save reports and searches.

The most helpful section of the CQ Researcher report is the bibliography. The bibliography contains an extensive list of citations and abstracts for magazine and newspaper articles. The full text for the majority of the articles listed in the bibliography can be retrieved from Academic Search Premier or Lexis Nexis.
