Free Speech, Academic Freedom, & Intellectual Freedom

This guide will examine topics and controversy related to the First Amendment and Intellectual Freedom by exploring the right of every individual to both seek and receive information from all points of view without restriction.

Background

Overview

                                                                   

The following Library and Internet resources are geared toward FIU students who are studying the First Amendment, freedom of the press, and other related issues.

  • Selecting the best resources to use for research involves many factors, including assignment requirements, the currency of the research topic, and the depth of coverage needed.
  • Periodical articles (magazines, newspapers, trade publications, and scholarly journals) are excellent sources of current and/or specific information for informative and persuasive speeches.
  • Additional help with library research techniques can be found on the FIU Library's Research Strategies Library guides
