ABS360: Public Policy Analysis: Home

In this Guide

This guide was developed to help students in ABS360, Public Policy Analysis, complete research for their writing assignments.

Navigate this guide's contents by using the tabs, or any of the following links.

What is Policy? - This page defines policy in alignment with your text, and explains how bills become law.

Bills & Laws - This page provides lists of resources to find federal, state, and local bills, laws, and regulations.

Executive & Judicial - This page links to resources for researching executive and judicial involvement in policy.

How to Cite Policy Resources - This page provides resources to help you cite government documents and other policy-related materials.

This guide was adapted from the Policy guide at Portland State. Many thanks to librarians Emily Ford, Kimberly Pendell, and Rick Mikulski for allowing me to adapt the content.
