Trial Database: Political Science Complete

October 1, 2010

Ramaker is testing out a new political science database, Political Science Complete.  The database contains full text for over 480 journals, plus  indexing and abstracts for nearly 2,100 titles. What’s more, many of the titles are unique to this collection.  PSC has a worldwide focus and covers topics such as law and legislation, comparative politics, political theory, international relations, humanitarian issues, and non-governmental organizations.

If you’re taking any political science courses, this is a great resource to try.  If you have any questions, be sure to ask a librarian.  And if you do try it out, we’d love to hear what you think.
