Political Science - American Government: Find Books

Finding Books for Research

As you explore your topic, make a list of keywords that could be used for searching.  This includes words for the topic itself, plus any synonyms or related terms.  Library search engines work best when you use basic terms and brief phrases rather than sentences.

For example, if you are writing about the history of the 14th amendment to the Constitution, your list may include these additional terms:

  • Fourteenth amendment
  • Due Process
  • Equal Protection clause

Ludden Library has more ebooks in databases than we have on our physical shelves. Don't forget to search both!

Interlibrary Loan

If we don't have something you want, you can use this form to see if another library will send it to us:

Although most items arrive within a week, it may take two or three weeks if it is difficult to find or shipped from out of state. Therefore, requests should be made well in advance of the date materials are needed. For further information on the interlibrary loan process, please contact the Information Desk.
