- Communications and Mass Media Collection
Indexes more than 100 journals focused on all aspects of the communications field. Key subjects covered include advertising and public relations, literature and writing, linguistics, and many more.
- Academic Search Premier

- Google Scholar
Google Scholar enables you to search specifically for academic research including journal articles, books, technical reports, conference proceedings, and other scholarly material.
- World News Connection
An extremely valuable research tool for anyone who wishes to monitor or consult non-U.S. media sources.

- JSTOR Arts & Sciences
Full-text archives of more than 1300 scholarly journals across all disciplines, some of which date from the 19th century. One excellent use of a JSTOR search is when you are seeking a unusual phrase or wanting 19th century or early 20th-century scholarly articles; broader search results can be overwhelming. However, the other databases will lead you to JSTOR as appropriate, when the article is held in the full-text archive.

Also includes the online edition of the five-volume biographical dictionary, Notable American Women (1971-2004).
