Psychological anthropology falls in the B class; archaeological method and theory in C; ethnographies and archaeological site reports are in D, E, and F; anthropological method in GN; political anthropology in J; legal anthropology in K; ethnomusicology in M; and physical anthropology in Q."
In the Library of Congress Classification Scheme, the GN section is labeled "Anthropology." In the Sewanee library, GN is on the main floor.

When should I use TigerSearch?
TigerSearch is the place for general searches. With a single search, you can find all of the Library's materials, including articles. Use key words and phrases that you pull from your assignments or other sources to create a search.
The facets on the left give you lots of ways to target your results, by language, by geographic area, and by type of material, and also gives you ideas for related searches.
The TigerSearch articles search is great for searching multiple databases and journal collections all at the same time. You can choose groups of databases to search in using the subject portfolios at the left.
What does TigerSearch search?
TigerSearch searches our library’s holdings, which the Classic Catalog also searches, 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.)
