Anthropology Research Guide: Quick Start!

We're here for you during the campus closure!

Our librarians and staff are working remotely and happy to help while campus is closed to protect your health. Some tips: 

Need to get started quickly?

1. Search our catalog for ebooks and books in the library.

2. Search Anthropology Plus and AnthroSource for articles and book reviews published within anthropology journals.

3. Search Web of Science and Scopus for related articles, as well as book chapters in archeology and biological anthropology.

4. Search Google Scholar.fore your topic, "ethnographic" or "fieldwork" or specific article. (If you find a good article, click "Cited by" to see who else is writing on similar subjects). 

5. During the closure, read older books online at HathiTrust (login with your Cal ID) or download from Open Library if you can't find them as ebooks elsewhere.

6. Email your librarian, Celia Emmelhainz, if you're having trouble finding sources!
