Course Number: 
PLS 201
Instructor: 
King, Aaron

This is a very selective guide to the resources you will find useful as you do research in the field of political science.  For more resources, consult the general research guide page for Public and International Affairs or contact your liaison librarian (on the right side of this page). Depending on your topic, you may want to consult the research guides for other disciplines as well.  For instance, if you are exploring the role of media in political science, try visiting the research guide for Communication Studies.
