The Sawyer Library is providing access to three additional databases:  Public Administration Abstracts, Political Science Complete, and Education Research Complete. 

Public Administration Abstracts includes bibliographic records covering essential areas related to public administration, including public administration theory, and other areas of key relevance to the discipline. The index contains 60,000 records, from important journals like Journal of Public Economics, Public Administration, Public Administration Review, etc. EBSCO has digitized the full archive of this index, bringing coverage back to 1974.  Fulltext links to other databases are provided for many of the indexed articles.

PSC is comprehensive and has a worldwide focus, reflecting the globalization of contemporary political discourse. The database also features more than 165 full-text reference books and monographs, and over 27,000 full text conference papers, including those of the International Political Science Association.
