World Campus students have access to the same library resources as resident students. You can request books, use interlibrary loan, and request help with research questions. The Libraries' Guide for World Campus lists a wide array of resources.
We are your "personal" librarian for this course and will do my best to answer any of your questions. Please feel free to email or phone us at any time. If you need immediate assistance and we are not available please use the "Ask a Librarian" service available from any Libraries' web page. They can help with many common problems. Let them know that you are a WC student and in PL SC 456.
The Libraries has over 700 databases, thousands of Ebooks, and tens of thousands of online journals. This guide is an attempt to distill those resources into a set of core resources useful to the study of Latin American Politics. It is not intended to be exhaustive. If you need more assistance please contact us for assistance.
The guide is divided up in pages, with each page focusing on a particular type of information that can be used to complete your projects. From finding research articles to locating data sources, the guide outlines reputable, high quality resources.
These guides can be used to expand on the resources in your course guide.
Scattered throughout the guide are a number of short video tutorials on how to use specific resources. These will help you complete your projects and the library assignments. They are listed here for your convenience.
