Finding books

There are so many excellent books that can support your research.
You don't necessarily need to read the entire book when researching for an assignment.
Many books have chapters that are self-contained, and many are anthologies which contain multiple essays or articles by various authors.

To find books, it's best to start with a key word search in the catalogue.

You can also search by subject (as seen below):

You must then use a Library of Congress Subject Heading, such as one of the following:

Mass media
Intercultural Communication
Interpersonal Communication

If you want to browse the shelves, books on the following topics can be found in these call number ranges:

Communication in general, or mass media  - P87-P96
Social media - P96 and HM742-HM743
​Interpersonal communication  - P94.7

*Please keep in mind that the subject area of communications is multidisciplinary, and relevant titles may also be found in other call number areas.
