Public Administration

This guide is a starting point for research related to resources in public administration, political science and related fields.

Welcome to the Public Administration Research Guide!

The purpose of this guide is to introduce you to the best library resources and services for your research in public administration, political science and related fields.

Getting Started

Start your search by going to the Library Website:

  • Use OneSearch, the search bar in the middle of the library webpage, to search for articles in journals, books, newspapers, and other publications. OneSearch is a search engine that searches many of the library databases simultaneously.  OneSearch contains features that allow you to refine your search results, such as limiting them to scholarly publications or peer-reviewed articles, or by date.
    • Please note: While OneSearch searches many databases at the same time, it does not include ProQuest and most business and psychology databases.  These must be search individually. 

Scroll down to More Ways to Search to search individual resources:

  • Databases - If you don't find what you are looking for in OneSearch, try searching individual databases such as ProQuest,  Statista, or IBISWorld.
  • eJournals & eBooks - Search for individual ebooks and ejournals. 
  • Research Guides - These guides aggregate useful resources and information on academic subjects, courses, and topics. Search by subject area, topic, or course number.
