Communication Studies: Articles & Databases

General resource for Communication Studies

Finding Articles and Databases

Articles and databases will be incredibly useful to your research at the University of Iowa. Many of our articles and databases are cataloged through InfoHawk+ (see the video to the lower left) - but not all of them. To search databases, select your database title or subject area. Each database has a slightly different interface - don't feel like you need to be an expert at them all. Use the help/search tips and you can always ask a librarian

Requesting Full-Text of Articles

Many of the articles in our databases offer access to the full text, but some will just show an abstract. You could also know the title of an article, but it's in a journal that the University of Iowa Libraries doesn't own.

To get the full text of an article, use Article Delivery.

If we have the article you want in our print collection, we'll scan if for you and deliver it electronically through the Article Delivery/Interlibrary Loan system. If they article you want is not in our collection, we will try to get it for you from another library and deliver it through the system.
