New! Communication & Mass Media Complete

A new online resource at the Libraries provides a scholarly look at the news that's traveled coast to coast or just person to person.

Communication & Mass Media Complete (CMMC) combines two earlier databases in the fields of communication and mass media studies -- CommSearch (formerly produced by the National Communication Association (NCA), and Mass Media Articles Index (formerly produced by Pennsylvania State University). The new database offers full-text coverage for more than 200 titles plus citation coverage for many more. Many major journals have indexing, abstracts, PDFs, and searchable citations from their first issues to the present (dating as far back as 1915).

CMMC uses a controlled vocabulary and includes linked references for all "core" peer-reviewed journals. Search limits include the ability to restrict search results to full-text, scholarly (peer reviewed) journals, or articles that include references.

Users can access CMMC from the front page of the Rutgers University Libraries website, either through IRIS or by following the path: Find Articles / Indexes and Databases / Social Sciences & Law / Communication
