Hi Savannah,

Great topic, very interesting.  I found some good results using a database called PsycINFO (if this link doesn't work, you can find the PsycINFO on the list of databases on the library main page.)

Here is what my search looked like:

I found the phrases "social media" and "self concept" by using the Thesaurus button at the top of the page.  I got 11 results, about half of which are available full text (meaning you can read the whole article) in this database.  I'll send you an example of what I found in a separate email.  

If you want an article that doesn't have a full text link, click the Get It link under the article and request it through interlibrary loan.  (Let me know if you haven't used interlibrary loan before, and I can walk you through the process).  

In the results list I saw a book review of a book called Self Representation and Digital Culture.  Lamson does not have this book, but you could request this through interlibrary loan if you're interested.  

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions.
