Access to CIAO: Columbia International Affairs Online, one of IPSAportal’s top 300 websites for political science, is now available. Visit the library homepage, under Databases A-Z, or at http://www.library.villanova.edu/Research/Databases#C.
CIAO is a resource that aggregates dispersed content about theory and research in international affairs. CIAO includes working papers from university research institutes, occasional papers series from NGOs, foundation-funded research projects, proceedings from conferences, books, full-text journal articles and policy briefs, and teaching materials including original case studies written by leading international affairs experts, course packs of background readings for history and political science classes, and special features.
Search results can be sorted by date and relevance. CIAO also supports advanced searching capability, provides links to international affairs Internet sources, and offers a monthly “focus” feature containing resources and links about a current topic in the news. All sections of CIAO are updated monthly.
