If you feel like you need some additional help in any research required in your class, you can reach out to the Communications librarian, Garrett Traylor.  You can communicate with them via email (garrettntraylor@augustana.edu) or by setting up a research help appointment.  These appointments are typically 30 minutes long, and take place in either their office (Library 222) or virtually. To reach out to Garrett, click on the "Email Me" button in the profile box on this screen.
