American Government: Home

A guide to help students and staff find reliable sources about the American government


Welcome to the Research Guide for American Government...

This Research Guide is to inform users about the American Government. Indexes and databases, books, and websites inform on elections, politicians, governmental documents, and the structure of the American Government.

Where will I find information?

Information on Search Tips and InterLibrary Loan (ILL) are below.

In the column to the right you will find links to Mercyhurst University websites and Ridge Library Hours. Below that is the Libraries Catalog Search.

What is a Guide?
