Databases provide you access to countless journal articles, newspaper articles, ebooks, videos, and much more! The best part? They are available to you 24/7, on or off campus--which means you can do research from home even if the library is closed!

Just click on the link for the database to get started. If you're off campus, you'll have to log in with your student ID number.  If you have questions or need help using the database, please contact a reference librarian or check out some of our video tutorials.

The American Political Science Association (APSA) uses a "light version" of the Chicago Manual of Style citation system. It focuses on formats that are important to political science, especially documents produced by the United States government.

The most recent citation style guide for APSA is based on the 16th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style. It relies on an author-date system, and parenthetical references within the text direct readers to the reference list. Notes are not used in APSA.

The following videos from Penn State University provide help when working with APSA style manual:| Central Library: 281-476-1850 | Generation Park Campus: 281-998-6150 x8133 | North Library: 281-459-7116 | South Library: 281-998-6150 ext. 3306
