Key Resources

The research tools below will help you find journal articles on political institutions, processes, behavior, politics, and public policy at the state and local level.  Many articles provide in-depth analysis of the policy issues you'll investigate as part of the bill drafting process. Newspaper and other media resources provide information about current issues and current events; historical newspapers provide insight into policy debates over time.

Look at other Library Guides for advice on article search tools in a variety of subject, for example, crime, sustainability, health, technology, and education.
