Hello! Librarians are here to help! Subject-specialist librarians can sit down with you and explore any topic.
The topic of your paper determines the specialist you should contact. For example, if you're doing research on psychological effects on teens' body images as a result of images displayed in the media, you should talk to the psychology librarian. Unless you are working on a topic related to the English language or to English-language literature, you don't need to speak with the English librarian.
If you are looking for help with finding pros and cons on you topic, try the database CQ Researcher or Opposing Viewpoints in Context. Both of these databases provide multiple sources for relevant pro and con arguments.
