Course guides for: Comm 131, Comm 200, Comm 301, Comm 306 and more!

Corona Virus Closure

Greetings Students! While classes are moved online, there are two important things you need to know. 1. The Horn Center Computer Lab is open if you need to access your courses or course materials. 2. The Library building is closed but I am still working! You will only have access to digital materials so contact me if you need something that is only available in the library (so we can find a good alternative)

I have canceled all the Drop-In Workshops scheduled for the month of March and April. Here are the ways you can get research help and extra credit if you are in a class that gets extra credit by attending the workshops. 

1. I will have my personal Chat (Chat with Tiffini) online as much as possible. This will allow for synchronous conversations. (you will get extra credit for substantive chats)

2. I will be available by email as always. I will give extra credit for substantive email exchanges. If your course is giving extra credit- in your initial email please put your professor's name, the course and course number and your full name in the subject line. This will allow me to add you to the extra credit list. 

Wash your hands. Remember Social Distancing. 

Office Hours

Virtual Office Hours by Chat or Zoom will resume in the Fall semester. If you need to contact me regarding research this summer, please email me. 


This page is for all library instruction sessions for the Communication Studies Department. On each course page you will find links to relevant databases, slide presentations and handouts.
