The Charles and Louise Travers Department of Political Science at UC Berkeley offers the full range of expertise within nine subfields of contemporary political science:
The UC Berkeley Library maintains a research-level collection in all subfields of political science to support not only the department's research and teaching programs, but many other disciplines, interdisciplinary programs, and professional schools.
The majority of the Political Science Collection is housed in the underground Gardner (Main) Stacks, which connects the Doe and Moffitt Libraries and can be searched for via OskiCat, UCB's library catalog. Reference materials in the social sciences, including government documents, are located in the Reference Center and North Reading Room on the 2nd floor of Doe.
