The following links are much better than random Google searches for finding the information you need. These collections of information have been put together by the Library staff with political science research in mind.
1. The library’s website has a page chock full of useful databases and indexes ranging from Gallup polls to UN Treaties. It’s worth looking at. Go here and then select an area of Poli Sci within the “I’m doing research in” box.
2. Sawyer Library has a large and very useful collection of government documents.
3. FRANCIS search for political science periodicals.
Should you have any questions, or wish to make a research appointment at Sawyer Library, feel free to contact the library liaison for Political Science, Rebecca Ohm.
