Political Science 1020

Research Help

This course guide is designed to help students in POL 1020 complete a research paper assignment.

Each page of this guide has content to help. 

  • Research Steps will help you organize your ideas and break your topic down into searchable keywords.
  • Encyclopedias will help give you background information on your topic and lead you to key sources and research.
  • Databases will lead you scholarly articles on your topic.

If you need extra help with your paper, you can get in touch with me, or visit the Weldon Library. There will be extra research help available at the Service desk in Weldon from 11am-3pm, March 1st - April 7th.

Good luck with your paper!
