Goals for this class session
Our goals for today are:
- to learn how to find sources to use in your papers
- to learn how to use those sources to guide decision making in politics
- to learn how to search ethically for information: in other words, how not to let your biases guide you down a false path
Research Tools for this class
Political Science Database This link opens in a new window
Use to find Peer-Reviewed Scholarly Articles for your political science papers. It also has resources that will be useful in other classes.
HeinOnline This link opens in a new window
Use to find legal cases from the Supreme Court on gerrymandering and drawing districts. Light on state resources, so you will likely not find too many legal cases that are specific to New York State. Useful also for finding legal journals: peer-reviewed journals that contain articles on the law.
