The Anthropology Review Database (ARD) is an excellent place to look for anthropology books on particular topics. The reviews posted provide both descriptive and evaluative information which will help you decide which books will be most helpful.



An important place to look for many materials not owned by the Tri-College Libraries. This combined library catalog contains more than 300 million records describing items owned by libraries around the world. Many of these items are available to you though interlibrary loan.
