Model UN Research Guide: Start


Welcome to the research guide for Model UN! I've put together a number of resources that will help you investigate your country & related topics. Please don't hesitate to contact me directly at any point in your research. I can help you develop a research strategy, identify the right places to look, and troubleshoot any research issue that arises. My contact info is beneath my picture on the right.

The American Model United Nations (AMUN) also has a research guide with many excellent resources to help with your research.

Recommended Databases

Use these databases to explore topics related to your country, as well as information about the countries themselves. Use the Search Tips &. Tracking Down Materials tabs (above) for tips on how to best find and access materials.

Country Specific Resources

Here you'll find links to resources about specific countries, including the United States. While these are all very useful resources, make sure to consult the Regional Surveys of the World set, which is highly recommended.

I love meeting with students and faculty to talk about your research, including any issues you have - or even if you just want to brainstorm. There are lots of ways to reach me. Email me with questions or use the old fashioned phone number below to contact me. Or stop by during my reference/office hours: Wednesdays from 2:30 - 4:30 and Thursdays from 1:00 - 2:30. I'll either be in my office (Library 108B on the lower level) or the reference desk on the main floor.
