We’ve spent our first lesson of the year (my first ever Photographic Journalism lesson) looking at the library resources at our disposal. Throughout this year we’ll be utilising a variety of databases to search through newspapers, journals and other texts as well as different media types.

I feel that these resources will be hugely important for learning about our subject areas.

Below are some references in the Harvard style, which reference three publications we will be using in the coming weeks and months.
