POS 453/499: Political Behavior & Participation: Home

Getting Started

For this course, you will need to find sources for your research paper.  This guide provides links, and searching hints, to library tools to find books and articles.  Please get in touch with me if you have any questions - about what tool to use, what terms to search, how to access what you find.

Finding Books

  • You may also want to try an Advanced Search using a variety of term combinations, i.e. voter participation and United States, putting one term/concept in each of the search boxes

Finding Scholarly Articles

Here are four recommended library databases where you can search curated collections of articles for your research topic.  Use the Advanced Search functions to get the most relevant results, and choose peer reviewed, or scholarly journal, articles.
