The Center for Media and Journalism Studies: Get Started

Research help for those looking for news-related information on the web, in libraries, and library databases.

Journalism Research

Researching a news item often involves finding background information on the story's subject and reading related reports published by other news media outlets. This guide will show you how to:

  • look up background info in books, library databases, and the free web
  • search news/journalism-specific library databases for related articles published by news outlets other than your own

Get Expert Help!

Librarians are experts at finding information. Your IRSC librarians exist to help you navigate the often complex path to finding all the information you need to satisfy any research need. We offer email, phone, I.M. and in-person consultations so just drop us a line to get an expert working on your case!

Ask Us Anything!

Indian River State College has a wealth of online resources to help you complete your research, but do not hesitate to ask a librarian if you need help on a specific project or class.   

Click on the librarian for contact information. For virtual students and those students at the Dixon Hendry or Chastain campuses, email any librarian to be connected with personalized research assistance.
