Welcome to the David L. Rice Library Anthropology Research Guide!

In this guide, you will find a collection of tools, texts, and links to library databases and resources useful for finding information relevant to the study of anthropology (including;linguistics/classics, archaeology, and physical archaeology/forensics). We have also provided a collection of links to some basic research and citation aids (see box below). To learn more about anthropology at USI, visit the program's page at the College of Liberal Arts

How to use this guide

Material in the Anthropology guide has been broken down into four categories:

  • Cultural Anthropology, which is particularly useful for ethnographic studies, cultural theory, and anthropological research on rituals, traditions, symbols, etc.
  • The Linguistic Anthropology tab includes information about linguistics in general and more particular studies of individual languages and literatures.
  • Information about the physical evidence of human cultures, traditions, and habitations is found in the Archaeology tab (the study of human history and nature through human artifacts); may also include material from Classics.
  • The Physical Anthropology tab covers information about the study of human origins and development (focused primarily on human remains and evolution rather than on human artifacts).

Additional information helpful for the study of anthropology may also be found in the following research guides:





World Languages & Literatures
