Welcome to the Politics library dashboard. The dashboard provides quick links to the resources you need to succeed in your course. Whether you are online or on-Grounds, UVA Library services and support are available to all students.
Your Librarian is Christine Slaughter
Each school/department at UVA is assigned a research librarian. Connect with Christine for help with your assignments. This service is available to all Politics students, and meeting with a librarian early in your research process can help you save time and get a better grade.
Christine can help with: learning how to use the Library online, brainstorming your research topic, developing your search strategy, capstone/thesis/dissertation planning, identifying relevant databases/journals for your literature reviews, tracking down resources, and citation management. Christine can meet with you in-person or online via Zoom.
Academic databases contain peer-reviewed articles, scientific papers, reports, and more. These are the most used databases for Politics research.
For many courses in Politics our preferred citation style is APSA or Chicago, but always check with your professor to make sure you are following the guidelines for a given assignment.
Virgo is the Library catalog, where you can find books, articles, and more.
