Library Guide Overview

Welcome to your library guide for POL 399: Revolting Children! Refer to it often, as it covers necessary information at different stages of research.

I can't emphasize this enough - please contact me with any questions you have and/or if you simply want to bat around some ideas about your topic and how you'd research it. Multiple ways of contact me are listed beneath my photo to the right.

  • The Books tab provides an overview of how to search and find books in our library (in case you've forgotten), as well as ways to search for and access books beyond our library.


  • The Articles tab contains a number of recommended article databases.


  • Search Tips outlines various ways to search, including idea mapping and common mistakes to avoid.


  • Research as Conversation emphasizes that we do research by figuring out what the experts are saying about our topics, and then figuring out how our own research fits into the existing conversation. 


  • Bibliographic Trace is so important that you'll see it highlighted on other pages on this guide, as well as this one. Use this technique! 


  • Tracking Down Materials is your one-stop page for answering any and all of your questions about tracking down hard copies of materials. Now you have no excuse for not finding that perfect article. :)


  • Finally, Project Management offers tools and tips for keep track of sources and citation styles.


Although many of the pages of this guide were brought over from the POL 200: Analyzing Politics library guide, you may also want to refer to that guide as well, depending on your topic. I'll also recommend the overall Political Science library guide, too.

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, even during the current pandemic. Email me with questions or to set up a Google meet. Starting March 30, librarians will also be available via chat - click on the little flag right below this message for more info. Be well, everyone.
