Welcome to your library guide to COM 120: Public Discourse! I designed this guide with your research needs in mind. On the Wider Research tab (above), you'll find recommendations for databases, websites, and other places to search for information about your problem. On this page, you'll find resources for finding information at the local level, no matter where your local level is. The rest of the guide has additional information to support your research. Spend some time exploring it!
If you need a refresher on using the library, consult our Library FAQs. We also have a guide on how to do research well - use it to brush up and expand your research skills! If you need help finding books, consult this guide (or ask anyone who works in the library). Finally, we also have a guide on how to cite sources.
Chat reference service is available Monday - Thursday 10:30 - 4:30 & Fridays 10:30 - 2:30. We look forward to connecting with you! Contact us with any question about research or library services.
These times don't work for you? Prefer to connect via email or Google Meets? Visit our Reference Services page for more options to contact a librarian.
These are the main kinds of organizations and groups that will have the kind of local information you're researching, depending on your topic. I've also included ways to find this information. Reach out to Julie if you need ideas or get stuck.
