Introduction to Anthropology


Anthropology is the study of all things human. Research in the field of anthropology requires the use of a variety of information resources. Although academic, scholarly or peer-reviewed articles and publications are considered the most appropriate sources for university-level research and writing, you might also have need of reference resources, audio-visual materials, digital collections, magazines, and news articles. Before using the following recommended databases to start your research, here are a few tips:

  • Start your search for articles in a general article database such as EBSCO Discovery or ProQuest Central.
  • For subject-specific articles use a subject database such as AnthroSource.
  • If your assignment requires the use of scholarly, academic or peer-reviewed articles, try a database such as JSTOR
