PSSA Workshop: "How to Research a Poli Sci Paper"

Sandy Hervieux, Liaison Librarian for Political Science, will be offering a research workshop tailored to political science undergrads. This workshop is designed to help you find and use the library resources you'll need for upcoming final assignments.

After the session, you will know how to:

• Search for materials in the library catalogue

• Locate and use political science databases to find peer-reviewed journal articles

• Find statistical resources

• Keep track of references and start a bibliography

The workshop will be held in the McLennan e-classroom (Back of the 1st floor of the McLennan Library Building). Ask the front-desk if you cannot find the room.

If you can’t make the workshop, but have questions related to research or the library, don’t hesitate to get in contact with Sandy directly at
