This guide presents some of the most useful library resources available at Bethel College for researching and writing speeches. It is only a starting place; if you need more and/or different sources, contact Gail Stucky for help.
Topic ideas from CQ Researcher
Although the College Library does not subscribe to CQ Researcher, its "hot topics" page may provide you with ideas and preliminary sources for persuasive speeches.
Credo Reference often has "Topic Pages" on important areas of study. They can provide you with not only background information but speech ideas as well.
