Help with doing research in Communication Studies.

Off-Campus Access to Databases and E-books

When you click on a database link on campus, you will go directly to the database.  When you click from off-campus, you will be prompted to log-in.  The log-in screen for our library looks like this. (NOTE: this is just an illustration)  

Inter-library Loan

Databases frequently provide full-text for many articles but in some cases the full text is not available. 

In order to get an article that is not available online in full text you can request the article by submitting an Interlibrary Loan Article Request Form.  A link to the form is frequently included beneath the citation in the list of article results. A link to the form can also be found on the library website under Quick Links.
