Getting Started

Welcome to the Political Science research guide. Explore the navigation links on the left to find subject-specific research tools, or use one of the links below:

OSU Catalog - Search for books, e-books, journal titles, and other materials owned by OSU Libraries, Columbus and regional campuses. Borrow Materials online. 

OhioLINK Catalog - Combined catalog of a consortium of 90 member institutions including Ohio university and college libraries, the State Library of Ohio, and more. Have materials delivered to OSU.

Search the Research Databases list by title or subject to find journal articles, many of which may be available as full text. 

Search the OSUL's Online Journals list by title or subject to locate a specific online journal title, browse a list of online journal titles, or identify online journal titles by subject.

If your instructor put material on hold for your course, find course reserves here.

What do I do if OSU Libraries does not have a book or article I need?

Use Article Express to request an electronic scan of articles held in OSU Library collections and the collections of other libraries around the world. Visit Interlibrary Services to request books and other materials not available in either the OSU or OhioLINK catalogs. If all else fails, contact me for help.
