Off Campus Searching

To access materials, the catalogue, databses, electronic journals, etc. from off campus you must log in using either your Gatorlink ID or setting up a  Virtual Private Network (VPN) account.  For long periods searching it is recommended to go through the VPN.  Just click on the link below and follow the instructions.

Starting Your Search: Casting a Wide Net

“It is good to have an end to journey toward;
but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”
(Ursula K. Le Guin)

Starting is often the most difficult step in doing research, please see my other tabs for guidance, if needed.  The "One Search" box below is a great place to begin your literature search.  Unlike its close relative, the "One Search" on the library's home page, this version has been commanded (by yours truly) to look only at designated anthropologically indexed databases and sources.  This does have its drawbacks and you may wish to do further searches with the full version.  Although, once you start a search you can change the parameters.  This helps to hone in on more relevant materials.  Also, as on most search engines, there is an "Advanced Search" option (or "More Search Options" in this case), which allows for more keywords, other search terms, and commands to be added to your search.  If you are looking for a particular database, check out the "database" tab.  Perhaps browsing through reference materials on the 3rd floor of Library West will help spark an idea or topic, see that tab to take that route.  Also in the reference tab is a link to "Reference Universe' which will allow you to browse many (but not all) of our reference titles at your computer.  If searching for books within our collection, there is nothing better than searching in the university's library catalog, select that tab, next to the default "Find" tab on the homepage.  And there is nothing like browsing in the stacks once you have located your topic's call numbers.  Serendipity rules!  Whatever works.  It is all good.

If you are looking for a particular item, I suggest starting with "More search options." If you are having trouble finding a particular book, try and get the ISBN number (try Amazon), and enter it in the ISBN box.
