Journals in communication are frequently some of the most helpful in anthropological research. This database contains scholarly journals as well as more substantial popular magazines in the field of communication and media.

The latest edition of a major literature guide provides citations and informative annotations on a wide range of reference sources, including manuals, bibliographies, indexes, databases, literature surveys and reviews, dissertations, book reviews, conference proceedings, awards, and employment and grant sources. The organization closely follows that of the 1st edition, with some much-needed additions relating to online resources and new areas of interest within the field (such as forensic anthropology, environmental anthropology, and Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, and Transgendered Anthropology). Separate sections focus on individual subfields, as well as emerging concerns such as ethical issues in cultural heritage preservation.
These books can be used as reference materials to get you started (even though they don't all reside in the reference section of the library!). They can be helpful for getting a better understanding on subject matter or developing a topic with more specific information.

The editors and authors ask how the practices of qualitative inquiry can be used to address issues of social justice in this new century.
