Do you want to locate newspaper or magazine articles on a current issue? Or do you need to use scholarly (or academic) articles for your research project? Click on the "how to" arrow on the left to navigate to the specific type of resource you need. If you would like to browse resources related to a particular area of Political Science, click on the "resources by subfield" arrow.
When you need to decide whether or not the resources you located are of high enough quality to include in your paper or presentation or you are unsure of how to cite your sources, take a look at the tools included on the "evaluating your sources" and "citing your sources" page. The "what's new" page highlights new books, journals and databases recently added to the library's collections.
