ANTH 113.03: Introduction to Cultural Anthropology: Home

A guide to help students in Professor Gallareta Cervera's course find ethnographies for their assignment.

How to Use This Guide

  • If this is your first time here, go to the Strategies tab where you fill find tips, tricks, and suggestions for finding ethnographies in the library. Finding an ethnography is not always straightforward and you may need to do some background research first.
  • On this Home tab, you will find links to our library catalogs. I've also included links to some of our databases if you want to extra research. You may not need to use the databases for this assignment. 
  • My contact information is on this page. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or have any problems finding an ethnography. Click the Request an Appointment link to make an appointment. 
  • If you have a quick question, you may click one of the Ask Us buttons to chat with the Research and Reference Desk. You may also send a text to the desk (740-444-4031). 
  • On the third tab, Ethnographies, I have compiled a small list of classic and contemporary ethnographies. 

Searching for Books in the Library

The CONSORT catalog can be used to locate books (and other materials such as videos, sound recordings, government documents, and special collections materials) available in the Kenyon, Denison, Ohio Wesleyan, and the College of Wooster libraries. Items requested will arrive in about 3-5 days.

Kenyon students also have access to OhioLINK, the combined catalog of over 120 other libraries throughout Ohio. Books requested through OhioLINK will take about 3-6 days to be delivered.

WorldCat is a catalog of library holdings throughout our country and the world. It contains records for many types of materials: books, sound recordings, video recordings, manuscripts, etc.

You must use Interlibrary Loan (ILL) to request items not available via CONSORT or OhioLINK. Delivery time will vary depending on the location of the material. Some requests may take up to 6 weeks.

Using Kenyon's Databases

Here are some databases that the library subscribes to that might help you find some names of anthropologists or topics of interest.
