Finding Ethnographies

If you know the name of an individual ethnic group or people, start your search there. If you only know the name of the country, read the entry for that country in one of the encyclopedias in the library. Search the WorldCat Local or DePaul VuFind with the words ETHNOLOGY and a specific cultural group or country. Other useful terms to combine with the group name or the country include:

  • ETHNIC GROUPS
  • ETHNICITY
  • SOCIAL LIFE AND CUSTOMS
  • SOCIAL CONDITIONS
 

Books about Anthropologists

To find book-length biographies of anthropologists:

  • If you know the person's name, search by it
  • If you don't have a specific person in mind, search the word anthropologists

Many encyclopedias have short biographies of prominent anthropologists.
