Focus of this Guide

The primary focus of this guide is finding quick information. In practice this means digest sources--reference materials that pull together news, statistics, or plots of novels from many places. This distinguishes them from most of the news sources in Finding the News, a companion to this guide that you may wish to consult.

A secondary emphasis is on sources of opposing points of view, the pros and cons of an issue presented in one print publication or online source. In this latest revision, I have retained a few titles that I believe may be useful even though they are no longer current. They are clearly labelled.
