Need articles but not sure where to start? These are some recommended databases for getting started.
- International Encyclopedia of Communication
This encyclopedia contains over 1300 entries that range across academic disciplines. Useful for topics in communication studies, sociology, psychology, information science, public policy and linguistics, among others.
- Communication & Mass Media Complete
Provides coverage of more than 500 journals in the communication and mass media fields, including full-text for more than 230 journals. Coverage for significant titles in the field goes back to their very first issue (as far back as 1915).
Provides full-text access to the archives of core scholarly journals in the humanities and social sciences.
This is the best database for research in psychological topics but consider it for other topics including medicine, psychiatry, nursing, sociology, education, linguistics, anthropology, business and law.
- ProQuest Research Library
Covers a broad range of scholarly journals, magazines, trade publications and dissertations in many different disciplines.
The current on-duty librarian for the library-wide Ask a Librarian IM service is available when you see a green dot at the top of the box.
