Hello! This guide is designed to support your research for your senior seminar projects. Use the resources on the tabs above to explore various ways and places to search.
If you need a refresher on using the library, consult our Library FAQs and an overview of the Library. We also have a guide on how to do research well - use it to brush up and expand your research skills! You will also find the library guide for POL 200: Analyzing Politics to be helpful, as well as the overall guide for doing research in Political Science.
Here are some additional resources related to state and local politics and government in the United States. Browse them to see what might be useful. If you have any resources to add to this page - ones that you've found useful and you think your classmates and future students of this class would appreciate - let me know and I'll add it.
If you're researching state-level policies, here are some relevant sites for the state of Minnesota. If you're working on a different state, search for these same kinds of resources from your state.
