JOURNALISM AND COMMUNICATION The Journalism and Communication section contains works pertinent to the study of communication and print and broadcast journalism including: advertising, mass media, public opinion, public relations and telecommunication. In addition to works on theory and criticism are works more practical in nature and intended for the professional preparation of future media professionals. The collection of titles reflects the multidisciplinary nature of communication and journalism as well as how the field has developed and changed since BCL3 was published. The Journalism section now includes titles on law and ethics, online graphics and design and special topics such as investigative journalism, sports journalism, war reporting, convergent journalism, and the role of the Internet in print and broadcast journalism. The Communication section reflects the importance of the mass media on society and in the undergraduate curriculum; and the significance of new media and technology in areas such as telecommunication, advertising, and mass media.
