AU Library Search

Communication Books & Journals

Finding scholarly books and journals typically requires researchers either to search a library catalog, or to browse a library's stacks by call number -- often both. For those unfamiliar with LC call numbers, here are a few useful ranges:

  • P 87-96: Mass media communication 
  • PN 1990-1997: Broadcasting, television, film, & radio 
  • PN 4699-5639: Journalism and the periodical press 
  • TR: Photography and photojournalism  
  • Z 40-115: Communication writing  
  • Z 657-661: Freedom of the press, censorship.
