New! Public Administration online research guide

The Libraries have created a new tool that makes research into the field of public administration a lot less taxing.

The new Public Administration subject research guide brings together all the resources of the Libraries and the most authoritative government-related resources on the Internet. An Indexes and Databases section identifies nine leading social sciences collections and five top health care collections, all available through the Libraries website. A Selected E- Journals section brings together 22 electronic periodicals on the topic on the Libraries website. A Reference Resources section points out ten vital print publications on the field, all easily accessible in the Libraries.

A section on E-Government links to the six most comprehensive and reliable websites for Federal government information, with a State and Local Government section linking to eight authoritative sites with information on state, county, and city activities across the United States. For a local look a New Jersey Links section identifies six important state government websites and for international perspective a Comparative Public Administration section links to five worthwhile websites, with data on the field from countries across the globe.

Users can access the Public Administration subject research guide from the front page of the Libraries website, either through IRIS or by following the path: Research Resources > Subject Research Guides > Social Sciences and Law > Public Administration.
