Telecommunications

Encompasses the study of a broad range of elecronic media including radio, television, cable, satellite services, telephony, multimedia, and the Internet. Specialties are promotional and marketing strategies, multimedia design, radio and television production, processes and effects, and industry and management.



The Telecommunications Collection supports teaching and research in the field of telecommunications, which encompasses the study of a broad range of electronic media including radio, television, cable, satellite services, telephony, multimedia, and the Internet.

The Telecommunications Collection historically developed emphases in radio and television, and is particularly strong in the area of television.  The Telecommunications Collection broadened its collections by building in other multimedia areas including the Internet and computer-enhanced communications in the late 1980s, adding it as an area of collection strength.

The Telecommunications Collection was initially housed in the Weil Journalism Library on the Bloomington Campus.  However, in 2004 the Weil Journalism Library was re-modeled, and  reduced in size to adjust for larger auditorium and faculty office spaces, thus leading to the transfer of the Telecommunications Collection to Herman B Wells Library, Research Collection on the Bloomington campus.  The Telecommunications Collection and the Weil Journalism Library Collection overlap in some areas, particularly radio and television news broadcasting, and general media studies.
