ANTH 3220 : The Archaeology of New Orleans and the Urban U.S.: Find Books

Research Guide for ANTH 3220 : The Archaeology of New Orleans and the Urban U.S.

Changes Because of COVID-19 Online Classes

Because all UNO classes have switched to online only and access to campus is restricted, online resources, both UNO Library-subscribed, and freely-available resources, will be the principal sources available to most students.

Other Sources for Books (beyond UNO Library)

o   WorldCat   -- This database combines contents of thousands of library catalogs, allowing you to search millions of records of books and other material. 

o   Google BooksSearch the full-text of over 10 million books.  Content availability varies.

 

UNO Catalog (books available at UNO Library)

o   Use the UNO Library's online catalog to locate books in the library.  You can use the author search or the title search to look up a specific book. You can also search by keyword to search all of the information in the catalog records, for any reference to a word or phrase, including some tables of contents. 

 o  Because we don't currently have on-site access to the UNO Library, it's important to note that e-books are also included in the catalog.  You can limit your search to e-books by selecting “Electronic Book” from the “Material Type” pull-down menu.  To see an e-book from the catalog, just click on the URL in the record to access an electronic version of a book (login required for off-campus access). 

o  Electronic books can also be searched by going to these individual e-book collections and searching the full-text content:
