Getting Ideas

There are many ways to get ideas for a research topic and to learn a bit more about the context/background of a topic you find interesting.

One way is to look at your TEXTBOOK -- is there a chapter you find interesting?  If so, look at the citations in that chapter and track those down to learn more.

Or browse and search through some news, blogs and websites that have a politics/policy focus. Some good ones, with a more political-sciencey bent are listed below OR check out this website that recommends political blogs

Finding Scholarly Information

Don't forget to search the LIBRARY CATALOG (the search box in the middle of the library's home page) to help you find books, videos, articles related to your topic.
