Research in History
This LibGuide provides a guide to the tools available to the Cedar Crest community for research of political science. A link to the Political Science Department's website is provided to offer more information on the programs of study and courses offered, as well as internship and research opportunities. The LibGuide also provides samples and instructions for the access and use of books, eBooks, reference tools, journals and databases.
Library databases and full-text articles may be accessed from off campus.
Follow the directions below:
1) select the resource you want to use from a LibGuide or the library website

NOTE: Your EZproxy login is the same as your Campus Network login; also, your Email login and your Canvas login--without the @cedarcrest.edu. It is NOT your My CedarCrest login.
