Did you mean hacktivism? I didn't find anything on hectivism and cybercrimes. 

If that is the term you mean, you can find information about it in our databases. Remember, if off campus  you will need to log in with your last name and 7-digit COM ID to access the databases.

I looked in the Current Event & Hot Topics Databases tab (page linked below) in our A-Z Databases libguide. This can be found on the library webpage by selecting the Search Databases link under the Get Started section. All the best databases are linked in the center of the page

The first database I tried was Gale Opposing Viewpoints. Simply select the link and search for the term hacktivism. You'll get Viewpoints articles, academic journal articles, etc.

Infobase Learning Issues & Controversies & CQ Researcher also had a couple of articles. Follow the same procedure.

EBSCOhost Academic Search Complete is another possible source. After searching for your term, be sure to use the limiters on the left to narrow the publication date. You can also narrow by Subject Thesaurus Term. Simply select that heading. You'll see a short list of subjects and a blue Show More link. Click that to expand to see a dialog box with all the subjects of the articles in your result list. Check off the relevant ones then hit the yellow update button.

I also included a link to our Tips for Finding Pro/Con Sources libguide. Towards the bottom left you'll find links to libguides with step-by-step instructions on using each of the databases mentioned here.
