Recommended Resource

CQ Researcher is an online database of in-depth, authoritative reports on public and social policy issues extending back to 1923. Each report is written by a seasoned journalist, covers a single subject or theme, and provides comprehensive coverage of the issue reported.  The contents of each report include an overview, background information, current situation, pro-con arguments, chronology, and bibliography, among other features.

To learn more about this database, watch the brief CQ Researcher Tutorial or contact Weis Library.


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Weis Library will be closed to the public, including WAU students and employees, for the remainder of the summer.

Please see Library Services @ Washington Adventist University to learn how to obtain online access to Weis Library and the kind of information resources and services that are available to students, faculty, and staff at this time.
