    Book Browsing

    On the other hand, sometimes you might simply want to go the shelves in the libraries and browse through all the communications books there, to get a sense of what kinds of books a library has in this subject area.

    You can use the following Library of Congress numbers to find the areas of the libraries where those books are shelved.

    Many Communications books have call numbers which start with P.

    For example:

    Subclass P

    P 1 - 1091 Philology. Linguistics

             P 1 - 85             General
             P 87 - 96           Communication. Mass media
             P 94.7                Interpersonal communication
             P 95 - 95.6        Oral communication. Speech
             P 98 - 98.5        Computational linguistics. Natural language processing
             P 99 - 99.4        Semiotics. Signs and symbols
             P 99.5 - 99.6     Nonverbal communication

    Keep in mind that communications materials can also be shelved in whatever discipline is being impacted by communication.  For example, books on telecommunications would be in the technology area (TK  5000); whereas, business communications would be in the business area (HF 5700).

    Of course, YouTube is a great source for finding videos on all types of communications topics...
