Unit Resources


ATS1203 - Magic, Science & Spirituality

The resources below are to be used in addition to your prescribed reading and your thematic readings.

Use specifically anthropology resources for your Annotated Bibliography and essay.

Remember: You will need to look in Library Search AND more than one database to find a wide variety of resources to reference. 
Find multiple articles, books, and other resources to support your statements.

Books & eBooks

One of the main resources you will use for you research are books and ebooks. At Monash Uni Library we have +2 million books and +1 million ebooks.

Check out our Top Tips for Library Search and the Books & eBooks page above for more tips!

You can use the Library Search box below to access books, ebooks, and more.

Remember: Only a fraction of what the Library has online is in Search. Use the databases too!

Finding ethnographies can be a key way to get more information, or to focus your topic to one particular place, people, and/or issue. We have few tips to direct you in your search in the 
Finding ethnographies 
tab at the top of this Guide, but here are a few general books to start you off.


Databases & Journals

Our databases are full of thousands of searchable journal articles. What you can find on Library Search is only a small fraction of what's in the databases! 

You can find a larger list of relevant databases on the Anthropology and related pages of Databases by Subject.


The databases listed below have only strongly Anthropology content. You can find a larger list of relevant databases on the Anthropology page of Databases A-Z.

For more Indigenous content, see the Indigenous Cultures & Histories Library Guide. 

Open Access content:

Searching in a journal with a narrow topic - like international development - can be a great way to start preliminary research.

These and all other Monash University Library online journals can be found in 
eJournals A-Z and BrowZine.
