Anthropology Plus Guide
Library Guide Series
- Anthropology Plus brings together into one resource the highly
respected Anthropological Literature from the Tozzer Library at Harvard University and the
Anthropological Index of the the Museum of Mankind Library
of the Royal Anthropological Institute (UK).
Anthropology Plus provides extensive worldwide indexing of
journal articles, reports, commentaries, edited works, and
obituaries in the fields of social, cultural, physical, biological,
and linguistic anthropology, ethnology, archaeology, folklore,
material culture, and interdisciplinary studies. The index offers
excellent coverage of all core periodicals in the field in addition
to local and lesser-known journals. Coverage is from the late 19th
century to the present.
There are about 800,000 records in the Anthropology Plus database, and
is available to current UT Arlington faculty & students via this web addresses:
The truncation symbol in Anthropology Plus
is an asterisk
(*), and when this symbol is put at the end of a word,
the database will be searched for all of
the possible endings--suffixes--for that word and can be used to find variant spellings.
For example, the command LABO* will search
for both LABOR and LABOUR and all endings of those words.
A phrase is indicated with quotation marks (" ") so that words that
are surrounded by quotation marks are searched as a single string. For
example, "anthropological genetics"
will be searched as a two word phrase.
Two Boolean operators that are important in finding information
are AND and OR.
The AND is used to connect two different
concepts and the OR is used between concepts that are synonymous.
Here are two examples to illustrate some of these points:
NEANDER* AND DNA
LABO* AND migration
The first statement will find material that uses the words
"NEANDERTHAL" or "NEANDERTHALS" and then link this set to
the items that have the string of letters "DNA."
The next statement will find material that uses the words "labor" or "labour"
and links these to the word "migration."
