Free Anthro Indexes

Can't get VPN software to work on the machine you're using, and don't have access to another college library during your term away? 

Start with these freely-accessible bibliographic databases covering anthropology.  Use DartDoc to request cited journal articles & book chapters. [Be sure to set your DartDoc status to "Off-campus" for your term away.]

More Free Indexes

Here's an incomplete list of additional freely-accessible resources relevant to anthropology. 

Most provide bibliographic citations/abstracts only. Some provide statistical data rather than citations. For a selection of freely-accessible scholarly journals, see the "Directory of Open Access Journals"

Library Resources for Off-campus Independent Research

If you're doing off-campus independent research and will not be affiliated with a local university, your library options are a bit more limited as we can't send you material through the mail.

We encourage you to do as much library research & initial gathering of sources as possible before you leave campus.
