This Course-Related Instruction Guide is designed to help you do research on Communication topics using the library resources. Navigate through the guide by using the tabs for easy access. 

However, you should still know how to get to Library resources from the Library Homepage:

Orientation to the Library Home Page
Research Demonstration
Library Services

  Library Card Application

You need a card to access databases from home, checkout laptops, use textbooks on reserve

  Network Account

You need this to use Cabrillo computers or Wi-Fi on campus

Finding books in Other Libraries

Search for your topic in the catalogs of other libraries, from universities, to your own local public library.

When you need to borrow a resource from another library:
InterLibrary Loan (ILL) books or articles. Go to the Reference Desk to complete form.

UCSC privileges include visiting the Library and using books, journals and databases on campus.  Working with a Reference Librarian, you may also obtain a short-term library card to UCSC if we cannot find enough resources for your research topic.
