This guide is designed to help students do research in cultural anthropology, physical anthropology and archaeology, and to help students and faculty discover anthropology resources available through the library.
Use the tabs above to navigate through the other pages of the guide:
The Library search box is your starting point to find books, ebooks, DVDs, and other materials.
Search these databases to find articles on topics related to anthropology. I would also suggest looking at the full list of library databases, as anthropological research can be multidisciplinary. Some research projects might require searching areas such as medicine, gender studies, gerontology, pop culture, and psychology, for which we have specific subject databases.
Searches the academic scholarly web for peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, and articles. Searching Google Scholar from Portland Community College (following this link to Google Scholar preferences and selecting Save will set it up in your browser) will identify articles available from the PCC Library.
