COMM 2200: Fundamentals of Communication: Home

Getting Started

Hello, COMM 2200 students! If you're just starting out, take a look at the Choosing a Topic box below. Opposing Viewpoints (Gale in Context) is a great place to find and explore topics, and to get great resources. If you need scholarly journal articles, try Academic Search Ultimate and others from the Magazine and Scholarly Articles box. On the Statistical Sources tab, Statista is great for finding charts, graphs, and data on virtually any topic. If you have any questions, check out the Ask a Librarian tab. 

Choosing a Topic -- Looking for Ideas

Specialized databases and websites explain issues within broader contexts and from differing viewpoints. This helps with understanding the "big picture" and can often help with forming ideas for narrowing topics.

Magazine and Scholarly Articles

These interdisciplinary databases provide access to articles from magazines, scholarly journals and some newspapers.
