Telecommunication plays an important part in our lives whenever we listen to music on the radio, watch TV, make a telephone call, use a cellular phone, or access the Internet for information, viewing video feeds, or downloading music. The growth of some of these practices and the merging of the technologies disseminating these services has increased the desire of governments to regulate these activities. Purdue Libraries have many government documents dealing with telecommunication. Examples of subject headings you can use to search the Library Catalog for government documents on telecommunication include:

Broadband Communication Systems
Broadcasting Law and Legislation United States

Cell Phones United States

Confidential Communications United States
Internet Government Policy United States
Telecommunication Law and Legislation United States
Telecommunication Policy United States
Television Law and Legislation United States
