Popular Culture

This guide is intended to help students find resources and scholarly works on popular culture. Relevant subjects may include, but are not limited to, film, television, music, genre fiction, advertisements, and gaming

Finding Journals at FSU

To Locate a Specific Journal or Article:
From the library homepage, choose the tab to search articles. From here, you can use keywords to search for articles and journals, or you can search by a specific subject area. Some databases have direct links to the pdf or html versions of journal articles.  In most databases, if there's not a direct link to the article, click on the "Find it @ FSU" button.
Electronic journals will have links to the databases that provide access to them.  Print or microform volumes will be listed as "Journals on the Shelf" and linked to the record in the Libraries' online catalog.

(Pop) Cultural Databases

These databases deal more specifically with pop culture/mass media (film, tv, music, literature, etc)

Multidisciplinary Databases

These databases are more broadly based, but still contain resources relevant to popular culture. If you are off-campus, make sure to login through the FSU website on the "Off Campus Access" link.

To find the full text of the article, click on a link to the full text or the "Find it @ FSU"  button in the database.  Many journals are available online, but some are in the Libraries' print collection.   Articles from journals not available at FSU may be requested through interlibrary loan.
