Browsing books in the library can be a great way to find helpful information on your topic. If you find a book that fits your topic, note its call number and look at books around it. You can do that online using the Classic Catalog, but it's probably best to just come to the library!
In the Library of Congress Classification Scheme, the GN section is labeled "Anthropology." In the Sewanee library, GN is on the main floor.

TigerSearch searches our library’s holdings along with the contents of most of our databases. Some databases are not accessible to TigerSearch, so if you want to search those databases, you need to go to them directly. (See a list of databases not included in TigerSearch here.)
The filters give you lots of ways to target your results, by language, by geographic area, by type of material. Buttons also allow you to limit your search to peer reviewed articles or items that have full text available online.
