This is a guide to important print and electronic reference sources to support students taking Journalism 289J. The emphasis is on material available in the University of Maryland Libraries' collections, but some Internet sources are also included.
Contact the subject specialist for more information on the sources suggested within this Guide.
There are eight libraries in the University of Maryland system. Seven are at College Park, and one is at the Shady Grove Campus near Rockville.
In addition to the materials housed at Hornbake related to journalism and journalism history, the Libraries have many other Special Collections to support your research:
Most databases, reference works, and e-journals are restricted to current students, faculty, and staff at the University of Maryland.
In order to access databases and online journals remotely, use Database Finder. When prompted to select a campus, select the option for University of Maryland, College Park and then "Students, Faculty, and Staff". Then log in with your Directory ID, the same username you use for email and other campus services.
