Research in Political Science

Political science examines the relationship between people and governments by exploring political institutions and systems, political theory, and human behavior. Students of political science will need to be able to find facts, statistics, and news of current events as well as analysis of issues in political science. This guide to information sources for political science research includes many reference books, indexes, and Internet-accessible information sources. Never underestimate the power of browsing either; books in our library are grouped by topic, so skim nearby shelves to find related information

This guide is a starting point; don't hesitate to ask a librarian for further assistance.
