Public Administration MPA Research Page



My name is David. I am a librarian at the Mortola Library.

More importantly, I am also a graduate of the MPA program.

I will be available to answer any questions regarding your library research for the class. I will post some videos that you will find helpful in starting your research. I am always available to assist with more. My contact information is below. Please think of me as your assistant in helping you get the data you need for your research. 
I look forward to working with you!

"How to" videos

Below are some quick tutorials that will aid you in your research, whether you are looking for scholarly articles, a book, or a New York Times article.

You can also access many other “how-to”  Pace Library Video Tutorials by going to the following page:


American Society for Public Administration (ASPA)

“We do this in many ways, primarily through serving as the critical bridge between public administration scholarship and practitioners in the field. All of our services and programs are geared toward supporting our Society's goal to advance the art, science, teaching and practice of public and non-profit administration.”

Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

“We are a nonpartisan research and policy institute. We pursue federal and state policies designed both to reduce poverty and inequality and to restore fiscal responsibility in equitable and effective ways. We apply our deep expertise in budget and tax issues and in programs and policies that help low-income people, in order to help inform debates and achieve better policy outcomes.”

Economic Policy Institute

“The Economic Policy Institute (EPI) is a non-profit, nonpartisan think tank created in 1986 to include the needs of low- and middle-income workers in economic policy discussions.
