Searching for Books

Books on politics, international & domestic law, criminal justice, public administration, and other topics related to the field of political science, are accessible through the library catalog.

(Are you looking for a book from the UAH library collection? Use the Library Catalog option in Primo Pathfinder to locate books by title, author, topic, etc.)

If your search does not find enough results, you can contact the library's Research Help Desk for help determining the best subject term(s) to use. (Contact info can be found on the Ask Us Anything! page.)

Also, because political science is a broad discipline, check other subject areas, such as education, science, etc. for policies and governmental information as well.
