SU Libraries offers valuable research tools and sources designed to assist students researching within visual communications. See this guide's menu bar for links to starting points. Seek out a librarian for advice or an appointment when you require further guidance. For students in VIS 544, this guide offers far more starting points and database options than one researcher may need, but choose wisely based on your specific information need connected to topics you are exploring, or visually oriented formats of information you seek. See especially, image and video and art and design databases on the subpage of this guide for "databases," as well as extensive runs of page imaged magazines on the subpage for periodicals (e.g., the full and continuing page imaged access to every Vogue Magazine issue ever published, 19th century through the present). On the databases subpage, some students may also be interested in U.S. and international page imaged magazine and newspaper content in the database called PressReader.
