ULS database trials

During the month of June, ULS has arranged trials to 2 databases: Points of View Reference Center from EBSCO and Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center from ThomsonGale. If you check out these databases and have any opinions about them let me know - ULS is considering subscribing to one of the two.
Points of View Reference Center is described by the publisher as " a full-text database designed to provide students with a series of essays that present multiple sides of a current issue. "
