Researching at Milner Library

Hello, my name is Sharon Van Der Laan.  I'm the librarian for the School of Communication.  If I may be of any help with research in the field of Communication or the use of Milner Library resources, please contact me!

This Communication guide can help you with:

  • Getting started with the research process
  • Identifying databases specific to Communication
  • Techniques for finding sources in the field of Communication such as books, ebooks, articles, etc.
  • Linking to a course-specific guide

Conducting research is an iterative process. For more information about how to conduct research, consult our An Overview: The Research Process guide.
