Welcome to the Anthropology LibGuide.
Please use the tabs across the top of the page to access the type of information you need.
If you have any suggestions for additional material, please let me know through the contact info in the right sidebar.
The Butler University Libraries use the Library of Congress classification system.
Books classed in the subject area of anthropology will have call numbers beginning with GN, so if you're just browsing, this is a good place to start. Keep in mind, however, that the field of anthropology is extremely broad and interdisciplinary -- you can find relevant information in just about any subject area, so always approach your research with creativity and persistence.
For further assistance, feel free to contact Sally Childs-Helton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Library videos are housed behind the circulation desk and may be viewed in the audio-visual facility on the first floor. When searching the library's holdings online, you might also come across the call number location SOC/ANTH MOD LANG CNTR. This designation refers to the Modern Foreign Language Lab, housed in Jordan Hall 391. Its hours are posted at Irwin's reference desk.
Home of the University Archives, local history resources, and various materials of interest to students of anthropology, including the William F. Charters South Seas Collection and early books on Native Americans.
