CMMC Communication Thesaurus

How many times have you been searching in the Communication & Mass Media Complete database and not found any results when you know there really should be something?

One tool that may be of help is the Thesaurus. This database feature can be accessed from the upper-right blue navigation menu at the top of the database. The thesaurus is communication-based, so you will only find terms in it that relate to the communication discipline. It's great if the topic you are searching for has a lot of different names (e.g. new media) and you don't want to waste time typing them all into a search box with OR's in between.

So next time you are searching, check out the Thesaurus and don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
