Library Resources

The library website is set up to help you locate materials whether you know the name of a database/book or just have keywords that describe your topic.

Use the library website's Articles/Databases search tab to find databases that have articles on your topic. Use the drop-down menu to select “Communications” (or another subject relevant to your assignment) then choose a database to search by topic -OR- search for a specific database by name.

Find Articles in Databases

Multidisciplinary databases contain articles and materials on a variety of topics, rather than focusing on just one topic. These databases appear as suggested resources on multiple LibGuide pages because they contain materials that are helpful to researchers in multiple subject areas.

Find Specific Journals by Title

Use the library website's Journal Titles search tab to learn if we subscribe to a specific online journal (example: New Media & Society). After you click on "Search," you will see if we subscribe and to what years we have access, and go from there.

Another way to find out of we have online access to a specific journal is by looking in the database called Browzine. You will be able to read the journal online if we subscribe.
