Communication Disorders: Get Started

A resource for Communication Disorders majors

Researching Communication Disorders

This guide will help you navigate library services, use databases to locate scientific journal articles as well as news and magazine articles, find books and ebooks, use evidence-based practice resources, and provide tips for using the internet wisely in your field.

The tabs across the side of the page will help you navigate between topics. Please contact me, your librarian, with any questions you might have (see contact info in the box to the left).

As the librarian serving as subject-specialist for Communication Disorders, I help students at all levels (and faculty) with:

  • Helping you plan your research strategy: what information you need, where to find it, and how to access and use it efficiently
  • Database searching tips and tricks
  • Distinguishing between types of scientific articles and reference sources
  • Tracking down books and the full text of articles from other libraries
  • Purchasing materials for the library with input from students and faculty
  • Group instruction and one-on-one consultations
