UNSURPASSED RESEARCH FACILITIES
Northwestern Debate Institute students enjoy regular borrowing privileges at the Northwestern University Library. Its 4.9 million volumes (10th largest among private universities), include extensive holdings of books, periodicals, and government documents about the debate topic. The library also has electronic access to over 90,000 journals and serials.
All of the traditional and electronic resources are easily searchable via North western’s online card catalog, NUCat and full access is available to Northwestern Debate Institute students. In addition, the Northwestern Library is home to a variety of computer assisted research tools, including Lexis Universe, all of which are at the disposal of Northwestern Debate Institute students. A special library, composed of hard-to-find sources on the topic, is available to Northwestern Debate Institute students.
We will compile materials from special interest groups and organizations that publish work on the topic and will supplement Northwestern's excellent public policy collections with relevant material from other outstanding American libraries.
