Broadcast : BCST - 1st year

Quick Tips

1. Start searching with broad terms. It's easy to narrow down your result list by adding more terms or using filters to limit by date and content type.

2. When you find a good source, use it to help you find more information by looking at the References (in articles or primers) or Source Link (in Statista)

3. Login in through the Library website or research guide link so you don't hit paywalls. Almost all of the databases are available from off-campus but you'll need to login with your BCIT email and password.
