Communication Studies: Welcome!


This LibGuide is intended to help students majoring in Communication Studies make effective use of the library's resources while researching information for class assignments.

In addition to this guide, students studying Communication may also find the LibGuides for Political Science and Family Topics helpful in their research.

To the right is a menu explaining what the hours of the Info & Research Help Desk are and what time students may contact the Info & Research Help Desk directly for research assistance. Each of the above tabs details a component of the research process and will navigate you through the library's resources. Below is a description of each of the tags in this guide.
