Like most U.S. academic libraries, the UMass Amherst Libraries uses the Library of Congress (LC) classification system of subject headings, each of which has a unique call number range. Communication and Mass Media occupy P87-96; within that range, Interpersonal communication is at P94.7, and oral communication and speech are between at P95-95.6.
Communication is an interdisciplinary topic, so relevant material will be found throughout the library. Here's a list of some broad subjects that you can try using the Subject Terms dropdown in Advanced Search. Try other Subject searches and combinations based on these examples.
