Depending on what information about the administration you are looking for, there are a variety of Berkeley College Library databases that can provide information. 

For basic information about the presidency and presidential administrations, use the library database, Britannica Academic. Enter the name of any president as a keyword into the library database to generate a concise and comprehensive article on the president or presidential administration.

For a biographical article on a particular president, enter the name in the Biography in Context database.

To find additional articles after using the above databases, especially in the case of presidential administrations from 1981 to current, use the Proquest Central database. ProQuest will provide many news and political analysis articles.  You can use the Publication Search feature accessible at the top left of search page (above search box) to search national newspapers such as the New York Times that provided news coverage of several recent presidential administrations (Proquest provides full-text access to articles from the New York Times issues going back to 1981). 

You can also find information about presidential administrations using books (or ebooks) available from the Berkeley College Library's collection. Use the library's online catalog to find what is available in our print book collection, or access EBook Central for ebooks. If we do not own a copy of a print book on the presidential administration, a librarian will help you find one from a public library or request to borrow the book from a participating Worldcat library.
