Political Science Resources

Welcome to Your "Research Homepage"

This is the Political Science LibGuide - a "research homepage" specifically designed for PS students! Here you will find links to the library resources that are most relevant to your field of study and most likely to help you in your research. That doesn't mean these are the ONLY resources you should use, but they are a good place to start! 

If you need help locating, accessing, or evaluating sources, please contact a Librarian - we are here to help you!
