A guide to information resources for students taking the Online ANTH 161 Cultural Anthropology course.

Obtaining Cultural Anthropology Articles...

Ram Search

Search for articles, books, journals, and more!


  • Searches multiple databases at once
  • Can be useful for interdisciplinary topics
  • Can see the list of databases searched, then choose a few specific ones to make a custom search
  • Can limit to peer-reviewed journals only
  • Defaults to finding only full-text results


  • Not able to search every database we have
  • Tends to be less precise, a little more like a general Google search
  • Searches books, news and other stuff, too; may have to filter those results out
  • Defaults to finding only full-text results - you may miss citations that would be useful for assignments

A pointing finger Try using the advanced search page (has more search options) to get more precise searches

Getting More Full Text

  •  Many of our databases make articles immediately available as full-text PDFs or text on webpages
  •  If not, then use the 'Full Text Finder' link
  • Even if the database you found an article citation in doesn’t have the full text right there, click on this link to check for full text in other library databases
  • This means: DON'T limit to full text when searching our databases
