International Studies Research Guide

International Studies

Welcome to International Studies

One handed handstand

This Guide is designed for International Studies majors, but please share with anyone interested in international issues. On this page you will find links to global media with current headlines and newspaper search engines so you can find local, regional or foreign press to keep up on international issues (or practice your language skills). The other pages in this guide are primarily designed to help you find your way around the library, especially the resources most relevant to your International Studies degree, but we also have other resources as well.

The Library tutorials, links, and videos are always a good place to start any research project and the other search pages have information that is more directly related to the International Studies major to help you find the databases, book call numbers, journals and portals specific to your area of Concentration. 

We also have a page where you will find information and links to a range of international organizations such as the UN and an International Studies Career page with guides and links to help you organize your thoughts about life after college. It's never too early to start planning ahead - either for that research project or what you will do after college.

If you have questions or suggestions please feel free to contact the listed library staff who are all here to help the students with their library questions - or the International Studies Program Leader, Dr Alison Holmes who regularly updates and maintains this Guide.

We are here to help.

Happy researching!
