Anthropology: Key Databases

Introduction to databases

Databases of academic content are essential tools for your research as a student. They will help you find quality, peer reviewed content in your area and often also include links to full text.

Library Search is a good first step for finding content as it searches across multiple databases at once.

It is also useful to use individual platforms as results can vary. Below is a list of key databases. You can also find databases by searching Library Search. Before searching spend some time clarifying your search terms (the keywords you will use to find content). This will save you time and will help ensure relevant results.

If you would like some help in searching databases contact your Subject Librarian.
