This guide has been designed to give you easy access to the resources most frequently used for political theory. The home page of this guide will provide you with information about how you can contact the librarians.
Finding Articles - When you click on this tab, you will be presented with an annotated list of the electronic databases used most frequently for political theory. These databases will provide you with access to articles and reviews appearing in scholarly, peer-reviewed journals as well as items published in popular sources such as news magazines, newspapers and trade publications. This page will also provide you with a link to Google Scholar.
Reference Sources - For background information, definitions, and basic facts, consult the encyclopedias, dictionaries, and sourcebooks listed on this page.
Finding Books and Videos - This page will give you access to two library catalogs, HillSearch, the MacPhaidin Library catalog and WorldCat Catalog. HillSearch will list all books, periodicals, audio-visual materials, and government documents located in the library. The WorldCat catalog contains records from libraries across the country and around the world. It can be used to order items from interlibrary loan.
Citing Your Sources - Your professors will likely specify which citation style he or she would like you to use. This page will provide you access to a number of the most frequently-used citation styles. This will also give you a link to RefWorks, an online citation tool.
In order to comply with state COVID-19 safety regulations, building occupancy will be reduced this fall. Call The Desk at 508-565-1313 to find out whether the building is at capacity. Safety measures have also called for some additional changes in library operations. You can learn more about them on the FAQ page of the library website.
