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.


Key Databases

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! 

The databases listed below are likely to have good content for this unit. You can find a larger list of relevant databases on the Anthropology, International Development, and related pages of Databases A-Z.





Open Access content:


Streaming Video & Films

Our three main streaming video platforms have thousands of films and documentaries. Have a look through each of them to see what you can find around your topic.


News & News Sources

One of the best ways to get a feel for the local reaction or regional feel around an issue is to look through news articles.

Here are our largest online newspaper databases. For more, click on the News & Newspapers tab at the top of the Guide.



The key to using websites for academic work is to make sure that you're evaluating your sources carefully, and only choosing to use those you feel are valid and reliable.
The Evaluating Webpages QuickGuide from Research & Learning Online (RLO) can help.
