Communication Studies at Mount St. Mary's University covers many areas of this vast interdisciplinary field: journalism, broadcasting; public relations; digital media; communication law; as well as the cultural and societal studies that support this field. This is a guide to the literature of these areas. The guide will help you find relevant information through the library catalog and multiple databases, especially Communication and Mass Media Complete, a primarily full-text resource.
In addition, the guide also includes ready access to a wealth of information found on the open web, which will provide you with a sense of this broader field; the organizations that support the study and practice of the communication arts; tools used in practice; and new ways of thinking about communication. Many organizations showcased here have very helpful publications--the kinds of publications that support learning about the community of journalists, broadcasters, writers and editors. They are well worth exploring.
