POLIS (Politics and International Studies): The POLIS Collection

Collections in the Seeley Library

The Seeley collects material relevant to the study of a broad range of subjects, such as international political economy, international relations, domestic and international politics and public policy.

We also collect material covering most regions and periods of History. Our particular strengths are in West European and American History, though we also collect for African, Asian, Middle and Far Eastern studies, where the collections complement those held in other libraries.

Also housed in the Seeley is the Latin-American Studies Library collection. For more information see their website.
