Library Research Resources

This guide identifies relevant resources to research any topic on globalization:


Fundamental to any serious research bibliography (such as the one in this UConn Honors thesis). Tools like UConn WorldCat let you discover titles in UConn's collections - and titles in research librariies around the world which can be requested for free through Interlibrary Loan

Journals & Magazines

Licensed journal research databases like Worldwide Political Science Abstracts search hundreds of scholarly, peer-reviewed journals, while many other library databases provide full text accesss to thousands of magazines and newspapers

Data, Analysis & Opinion

Additional online databases licensed by the library provide access to statistics on social indicators (poverty, education, etc.), policy papers of think tanks and NGOs, and alternative press publications.



Sign up for a Interlibrary Loan account

Create a free interlibrary loan account in ILLiad to request copies of article and books not owned by the library

Interlibrary Loan is an invaluable (and free) resource for those who begin their research early (materials can take up to 5-10 days to arrive). The best way to initiate a request for a book or journal article which the library doesn't own or have access to online is through the UConn Links button


which appears next to search results in almost every library database - Worldwide Political Science Abstracts, WorldCat, PAIS, etc. - listed in this guide. This automatically fills in an ILL request form with author, title, and other source information.
