Pro Tips for Using the Anthropology Library

Nothing's working?
  • When you're on campus, use the AirBears2 wifi.
  • When you're off campus, show that you're a Cal student using your Cal ID and password, or with a VPN. Full instructions are here



  • Search our book catalog (limit to: available online) to find ebooks from many sites in one place. 
  • Search specific ebook sites for more detail or full-text searching.
  • Use our help page if you're having trouble.
  • Email Celia to ask that we buy an ebook. 


  • Anthropology Plus and AnthroSource are a good place to start.
  • Once you know the useful journals, keywords, or articles in your field, you can use Google Scholar to find ‘cited by’ articles.
  • See our articles page if you need more places to search.  


News and Film

NexisUni lets you search many newspapers at once, and download the articles to anaylze and cite.

Kanopy has ethnographic, art, and contemporary films. 



Contact a librarian for chat, email, or video help. (Celia's info is here!)

Don't procrastinate, as you'll want plenty of time later for reading and writing!
