I need articles on the Dream Act for my Wiki project in English. I also need multimedia (images, video, etc).

Answer

Go to our Databases by Subject guide below and select the Hot Topics tab. There are several databases linked here that will be good for articles and images.

In CQ Researcher, Facts on File & Opposing Viewpoints, search "Dream Act". You will get good articles in all of them. They all include images and charts, as well, so you might be able to use them.

For streaming video, I went to Films on Demand, also linked below, and selected Sociology from the Collections drop down menu at the top. From there, I selected Issues and Special topics under Latino Studies (menu on the left). There are a few videos on immigration in the list. The newest titles are first. Films on Demand breaks the videos up by segments, so you can use just the relevant part.

I've also included links which provide specific instructions on using all of these databases, including how to get your MLA citations.
