The databases on this page contain primarily articles from periodicals (although some databases contain other information formats as well). Types of peridicals include:
Journal Articles: Contain research being done on a topic (probably the best source but sometimes too technical for beginning anthropology students)
Magazine & Newspaper Articles: Often cover for the general public the research that was presented in the journals (info is not as high quality as journals, but can help beginning students understand the journal articles)
For material in books (physical and electronic), click on the Books tab above.
Databases of electronic reference books are listed under the Books tab above.
The Free Web is made up of web pages you can find using Google and other free web search engines. Some assignments do not allow free web resources. Good material may be found here, but you might also find a lot of popular resources that are inappropriate for academic writing. Refer to our SCARAB for help in evaluating your sources.
The Fee Web (also known as the Hidden, Invisible, or Deep Web) includes subscription databases. You can limit your results to full text and scholarly, peer-reviewed articles that are often required.
