Find scholarly & popular articles, books & ebooks, CDs, DVDs, and more


Research Starter (top of the page) searches a number of databases (and the library catalog) at the same time. Searching within Research Starter can result in a really long list of results. To focus your research, use specific databases such as those below. Some are specific to a topic (e.g. PsycINFO for Psychology resources). Using these databases may be a more efficient method of researching. Also, as this is the Communication research guide, you may wonder why databases related to other disciplines -- like Psychology -- are listed. As with a number of disciplines, research in the field of Communication necessitates looking outside the discipline for sources. Don't limit yourself!
