Accessing Databases & ebooks from Home

If you are a student or faculty member at Brandon University, you can access resources from off campus.  Click what you need, and you'll see a white screen asking you to log in.  Once you log in, it should link to the resource you clicked.

To log in, you will need your Brandon University username and password - the same username and password you use to log into the Brandon University network when you're on campus. If you have not claimed your username and password or you are having trouble logging in with those, you should contact the Brandon University Help Desk (Phone 571-8500 Monday -Friday 8:30AM to 4:30PM).  You can also claim the id yourself.

Introduction to Research Tools in Anthropology & Archaeology

The library has lots of resources for researching Anthropology. This guide points out the ones that I think will be most useful in helping you.

If you have any ideas about how to make this guide better, please get in contact with me (my contact information is just to the right).

If you don't know much about your topic, use a reference work in either print or electronic form to look up background information, so you can start your research.

For articles, search Library Databases for Anthropology.

To find books, search the Library Catalog.

To cite sources, you might need to use the American Antiquities guide from the Society for American Anthropology. Click here for the PDF version of the guide.
