POLS-590 / POLS-860


Welcome to the POLS-590/POLS-860 library course guide.

The learning outcomes of this guide are as follows:

  • identify political studies resources using the library's website; and
  • refine research skills by learning to develop advanced search strategies and apply them in subject-specific indexes.

Proceed through the five sections to learn more (sections are various lengths):

  1. Introduction: Some introductory remarks and a quick overview of this guide.
  2. Finding Sources. A general orientation to doing research with library tools that includes tips for finding information using the collections at Queen's Library but also useful checklists for evaluating information prior to use.
  3. Writing your paper.
  4. Citing Sources.
  5. Conclusion: Where to go for research help.
