Politics Dashboard: Welcome


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

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.
