As the librarian for the Brian Lamb School of Communication, I consult, collaborate, and communicate with students and faculty affiliated with the School. I teach classes and workshops on accessing and using information sources, and I provide one-on-one consultations in person and via email. I also purchase new books, journals, multimedia, and other online research sources related to studies in communication.

Each tab on this site includes resources geared towards different research areas in the School: Health Communication, Interpersonal Communication, etc. The Publishing & Research Tools tab provides information about organizing, citing, and determining impact of research. The Course Pages tab includes pages tailored for specific Communication courses. Please contact me, via contact information on the right, about research and isntructional support, accessing or purchasing resources, or suggestions for this website.

I look forward to working with you.

Global Communication: New Agendas in Communication
Call Number: P96.I5 G535 2014 (HSSE Library, 2nd floor)
This volume interrogates what "global" means in the context of "communication," and who benefits from global communication practices and industries. Emerging scholars contribute their unique perspectives in communication scholarship, charting innovative directions for research that connects empirical evidence with pressing questions of social significance. This work defines the term "globalization," through understanding the cultural geography of global, regional, national, and local media. Critical evaluations of media production, distribution, and consumption practices, within cultural contexts, offer insights into how people "mediate" the global.

The News Gap: When the Information Preferences of the Media and the Public Diverge
Call Number: eBook
The sites of major media organizations -- CNN, USA Today, theGuardian, and others -- provide the public with much of the online news they consume. But although a large proportion of the top stories these sites disseminate cover politics,international relations, and economics, users of these sites show a preference (as evidenced by the most viewed stories) for news about sports, crime, entertainment, and weather. In this book, Pablo Boczkowski and Eugenia Mitchelstein examine this gap and consider the implications for the media industry and democratic life in the digital age.
