How to Use the Guide

We have organized this guide as a pathfinder to selected resources for journalism. Begin your research with the Find Books tab. There are three options in the dropdown list: 

1) Select the Reference Sources option for locating background information on a topic. Encyclopedias, both in print and online, provide an overview of a subject as well as identify  key authors and scholars who have contributed to the field. Lists of books and articles in bibliographies at the end of an encyclopedia entry are often referenced as well.  You can then use those names and titles in book catalogs and databases to learn more about the subject.

2) Then, select the Search the Library Catalog option to locate books, videos and other media in the VSC libraries. There are tips on using the catalog to locate materials in our library collection using subject, author, title or keyword searches.  In addition, there are instructions on how to request items from other libraries using interlibrary loan.

3) Although you will locate EBSCO eBooks in a catalog search, you can also search the collection separately and then download books to an eReader following the instructions on the page. We have listed a few choice eBooks for journalists in this section.

To locate more up-to-date information or articles in periodicals (newspapers, magazines, journals), use the Find Articles tab for easy access to databases.  If an article is not available in full text online, in print in our collection, or in full text on the Web, you can place interlibrary loan requests using the information on that section of the site. The Websites tab includes links to online sources in these categories: state and federal statistics; polls and surveys; issues and policies as well as essential first stops for journalists.
