Types of Resources to Locate Journalism Information


Books You can find a good selection of Journalism books in our collection. A book can provide detailed background and in-depth historical information about any given topic.
Reference Books This covers encyclopedias, atlases, and other resources that are referred to for specific information. Go to these for definitions, shorter explanations, quick historical and biographical sketches.
Articles Articles from journals, magazines, and major newspapers are the primary source for new developments and recent scientific studies in the field of Journalism. ACC databases can help connect you to these articles.
Web Sites The internet can provide a wealth of information, especially from government sources and professional organizations.


Journalism Apps

Apps (little software applications) allow you to customize your tablet to do the things you like to do. Some of the apps listed are free, while others are fee-based. Additionally, some apps are initially free, and then require in-app purchases if more features and functionality are desired. Listed, you will find some app recommendations we have come up with through trial, error, and our own experiences.

ACC Library Services does not endorse any fee-based apps nor it is liable for reimbursement of any apps paid for by patrons. Please refer to the Tablet Circulation Policy for further details.
