This course introduces you to sources that will be beneficial in your intelligence analysis research. Electronic resources are linked from here and from the library home page. You can also check to see what is in the PHC collection using our online catalog, Voyager.
When using intelligence sources, it is imperative that you check the integrity of the sources, especially of websites that may or may not have a vested interest in the information provided.
