Pierce Library does not subscribe to any databases that are solely dedicated to Anthropology. However, limiting the database list to the subject Anthropology will result in a list of general and subject-specific databases that cover Anthropology topics.
The following databases are particularly recommended.
- Academic Search Premier
General multi-disciplinary database. Includes close to 150 Anthropology titles as well as 13,000+ titles in other subject areas.
- SocINDEX with Full Text
SocINDEX with Full Text is the world's most comprehensive and highest quality sociology research database. The index contains full text for 314 journals dating back to 1895, approximately 100 of which deal with Anthropology topics.
Full text archive collection of core humanities, social science and science journals beginning as far back as nineteenth century. JSTOR contains full runs of around 30 core journals in Anthropology, though the most recent 3-5 years are usually not available.
- Google Scholar
Google Scholar allows you to broadly search for scholarly literature across disciplines using Google's powerful search algorithm. While you will not always have access to full text, you can set up Scholar to recognize you as an EOU user in order to find full text easily in one of the Pierce Library databases, or to order it through InterLibrary Loan.
