Link to and search the library catalog, in the middle of the page. Start with "social cognitive theory" AND communication. Don't forget the quotation marks and the AND - they're important! When the results load, use the left-side toolbar to narrow the search to full text. You will see ebooks listed first, like

  • AvBryant, J., & Zillmann, D. (2002). Media effects : Advances in theory and research. Mahwah, N.J.: Taylor & Francis .

Click the View eBook button and then search within (located in the upper left). Use the search box to search for "social cognitive" within the book. It will show you each time the term is used in the book.

If you also need articles, change the search to "social cognitive theory" AND communication AND technology. Return to the left-side toolbar and click full text and peer-reviewed. Because articles are less about theory and more about application, limit the dates to the last 5 years. This will provide good results including

  • Peters, O. (2009). A social cognitive perspective on mobile communication technology use and adoption. Social Science Computer Review, 27(1), 76-95.
