Communication Studies Books

Print books related to communication are located in different places within the library depending on your topic of interest.

If you're interested in language, linguistics, semiotics, and other "pure" communication topics, including mass communication, look in the P section on the 3rd floor.

If you're interested in the business and industrial aspects of communication, check out the HE section on the 4th floor.

If you're interested in the social and behavioral--including psychological--aspects of communication, you might look in the sections HM (sociology), HQ (the family, marriage, and women), or BF (psychology) on the 4th floor.

Keep in mind that all of these sections are large and will take lots of time to browse.

If you're looking for books we don't have, please submit a request for them via Interlibrary Loan (ILL) well in advance of your assignment. Via ILL, we will get the book from another library for you but it may take some time to be delivered.
