A great place to start your research work for the Media Ecology wiki project is with the special Chadwick Library LibGuide created specifically for this course. It brings together many of the most important resources for this class including books, articles, databases, and suggested websites.
Note: if you are off campus, or even if you are accessing this from the IWC dorms, you'll need to choose the special "Off-Campus Access" link.
As I mentioned in class, The Gale Virtual Reference Library is a very good place to start. They are the biggest scholarly-information resource company in the United States, probably the world. Especially useful to our project will be the Encyclopedia of Communication and Information and the Encyclopedia of Science, Technology, and Ethics.
I also strongly recommend the Literature Resources from Gale database, which includes many scholarly articles on all forms of media.
You should also try both the EBSCO, ProQuest, and JSTOR databases.
Our own site also includes a vast array of recommended links carefully arranged for you on the "Online Resources" page.
If you are working on an existing article you may see a bunch of suggested websites in the comment section. Check these as well.
Anyone who can get up to Iowa City should take some time to get to know the University of Iowa's vast research library, which will be much more up-to-date and inclusive than ours. If you can't find what you need there, it doesn't exist.
