Welcome to University Libraries' Public Administration Resources Page!


Since public administration is interdiciplinary, this guide includes links to relevant research guides developed by other librarians.  Those subject specialists are credited on the research guides they created, but we want to give special thanks to:

Marcia Gorin - who is an expert in goverment documents of all kinds.  Without her assistance, this guide would not be nearly as useful.
