Look Ma, I'm An Influencer!

These videos will help you locate sources for your American Politics research paper. The first provides an overview of two article databases, Political Science Complete and JSTOR, and provides some tips on finding full-text articles whenever they aren't immediately available. The second video will help you find e-books, including two workarounds for print-only resources.
