Finding Books

The library collects books and eBooks to support your studies. Level 11 of the library is where you will find books on Anthropology shelved on the left-hand side from Dewey 301. For eBooks, you can search for and access them via uKwazi.

The tabs on this page highlight some of the books available on the subject of Anthropology: New Books and Reference Books.

The video below will guide you on how to search for books and articles on uKwazi. For a more detailed guide try our uKwazi interactive tutorial.

While the Library still maintains strong print collections, it is important to note that many of our newest books are available only in electronic format. This is especially so in the Social Sciences but can also be true of some critical or highly-used works on other subjects. 

It is therefore essential to use the library catalogue, uKwazi, which has hotlinks to the electronic books, since browsing the physical collection alone will cause you to miss the up-to-date, new material added to the Library holdings over the last few years.
