    The Government Research guide is intended to create a pathway to research tools and resources to assist you with your projects and assignments in both Federal and Texas Government courses. 

    Many research resources and tools are available to GC students in the library; knowing which resources are available for your program or course and how to use the resources can sometimes be overwhelming. The guide will help you navigate library resources whether you are an online student, dual credit, hybrid student, or attending in-person.

    In this guide, you will find:

    • Recommended Databases and eJournals 
    • Books and eBooks
    • Open Access & Online Resources 
    • Research and Writing Tools 
    • Streaming Media
