Welcome to the University of Utah Marriott Library's online resource guide for Health and Communication. This guide offers resources across several disciplines. Please check out our Communication Guide for more information about Communication related resources. We also have several relevant guides in other related fields, including Public Health, General Medicine, and Consumer Health.
If your research involves other academic areas, you may want to consult with librarians who work with other departments. Choose a department from the alphabetical list of subject guides and contact the associated librarian.
The Knowledge Commons desk on the second level of the Marriott Library is also a good place to go for help with library research.
The Marriott Library email reference service request form is available by clicking on the Email Help tab above.
The library catalog, Usearch, includes articles: scholarly, peer reviewed and popular. Most of these articles will be available full text directly from Usearch. When you use Usearch, look to the left side of the screen and you will see many ways to limit your search. Some of the most useful limits might be Peer-reviewed Journals listed in the Show Only category at the top and the various choices under Subject and Creation Date. Click on the link below for a sample search.
Check out this LibGuide for information about how to search USearch effectively.
If you have questions about Usearch, contact the Health Communication Librarian directly or use the Email Help tab above for the Marriott Library email reference request form.
It is important to remember that for more comprehensive article search results (and advanced searching capability), you should use the article databases as advised in other boxes on this page.
