Lambda Alpha Journal

Getting Started

Welcome to the Anthropology Research Guide! Here you will find information about and links to resources to assist you with your Anthropology courses and projects. Your primary resource will be the database AnthroSource, but due to the multidisciplinary nature of Anthropology, you should also search databases in other areas such as sociology, medicine, and psychology.



E-Books in Anthropology

The UH Libraries own thousands of electronic books (e-books) across all subjects and disciplines. 

To find these e-books in the catalog, use the "Advanced Keyword" search and limit your results to "EBOOK" as material type. 

You can also view a list of the most recent e-books in anthropology.
