Welcome to the UT Libraries' research guide for Communication Studies 210 and 240!

This guide features resources to help you complete class assignments by learning about three important characteristics of the research process: finding, evaluation, and citing sources.

At the end of the guide is a final quiz designed to put together everything you've learned through the guide's resources and activities.

Please be sure to check with your instructor about if they would like to receive your final quiz results in print or e-mail format, as well as about grading procedures.
