Online Reference Resources

Gale Virtual Reference Library is an online database that searches many encyclopedias at once, including the Encyclopedia of Anthropology.

Get Started with Reference / Background Resources

Begin your research by seeking some general background information about your topic using reference resources.  Some reference resource will be available in print at the library.  Other reference resources are available electronically.  This page will guide you in all types of reference resources.
