CMS.701: Current Debates in Media: Home

Class research guide for CMS.701. Contains links to useful resources for research assignment.


Welcome to the research guide for CMS.701. I've put together the resources below to help you find supporting material for your papers and oral presentations. Not every resource or even resource type will provide what you need - that depends on your topic - but I would recommend checking multiple sources just to make sure.

Books and Media: MIT catalog

Books, ebooks, journals, databases, music, and videos at MIT.

MIT's WorldCat

Media studies articles - places to start

For other places to search, try the Media Studies Research Guide or the alphabetical list of research guides.

Searching for books and articles at the same time

This tool searches across our library catalog and many of our article databases at the same time. It can be excellent place to start if you're unsure of which database or even discipline might cover your topic, but be aware that it will likely generate a very long list of results (depending on the topic).
