The library collects a few different series of books that are produced for the college student giving an argumentative speech. Many times these series are compilations of several different scholarly authors' work on the same topic. Sometimes they will give you the pro of an issue and then the con of the issue, making it easy to read both sides of a controversy in two short chapters! Look for the following series by name using the keyword search option in the IRSC catalog.
If you need ideas for an informative topic you can use this search strategy to find a variety of books on different subjects at the library. Search for the keyword 'Encyclopedia' and browse the listings for ideas. If you have an idea for a topic, search for the main keyword(s) to find books on your topic.
Informative Speech topics can be:
How to... History of... Famous... Strategies for...
All about... Origins of... Reviews of... Compare and contrast...
