Choosing Databases in EBSCO. Start with Communication & Mass Media Complete (CMMC)! After that ...
Consider:
* Academic Search Premier (broad coverage of many topics)
* PsycINFO (scholarly articles in psychology)
Use EBSCO's Choose Database » link to search these and related databases
* Last stop: Web of Science. Good place to search last. Find more articles; slightly tricky to use.
