Oakton should definitely have 5 sources for you pertaining to animal cruelty

1) Search the Oakton Catalog for books.  Type in one or more keywords (such as "animal cruelty" or "animal rights") and, when you get some hits, locate those book(s) by call number in the library.

2) Take a look at this Research Guide on animal rights & welfare created by Oakton librarians.  If you click on the tab "Find Books & Articles," you'll find three good encyclopedias: CREDO, Facts on File, and SAGE.  Type in a keyword to bring up articles.

For articles, I recommend Academic Search Complete and Opposing Viewpoints for your topic. Both are excellent databases for conducting research on animal cruelty. You might also try LexisNexis Academic which contains newspaper articles.

The tab "Recommended Websites" has additional internet resources that are both "free" and reliable for research.

Hope this is helpful!
