ANTH 231: Native North American Cultures: Articles/Book Reviews

How To Find Articles

If an article is not available in full-text, click the "Find It!" button.  Find it at Willamette

This will check if we have access through a different database and our print collection. 

If we do not have access, you will be given an option to order it through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).  Fill out the form and click "Submit." It takes about 2 business days to get articles.

More Tricks for Finding Book Reviews

Go to Google and search the title of the book you're interested in and add in the phrase "book review."  For instance, search for: "Indian spectacle: college mascots and the anxiety of modern America" "book review."  Then look through the results ignoring Pinterest, Amazon and the like and try to spot citations that look like they may lead you to a more academic source and/or a longer, more scholarly review.
