Anthropology & Archaeology

This guide offers resources that are useful for your research in anthropology and archaeology.

Background Information

Encyclopedias and the articles in Annual Reviews are excellent starting points to learn about a topic or theory and to find lists of articles and books on your topics. Even if you think you know a lot about your topic, there are likely some useful sources listed in these items to help your research progress.

 

Getting started

Find quick background information and thorough reports on many topics in anthropology with this selection of encyclopedias and literature-review databases:

We also have access to many specialized encyclopedias both online and in print, so be sure to also search the library catalog for additional resources. The above are just a few options with very broad coverage by topic - but we also have more focused options such as encyclopedias of food, of masculinity, of fashion, of lgbtqqia topics, and more.
