Ethnographic and Documentary Film Databases at Emory:
There are many anthropologically relevant films that are not considered ethnographic so try a few searches or contact the anthropology librarian if you can't find what you need.
We try to provide everything you need for your research, but no library can do it all. If you find something that we don't have, we'll get it for you from another library using interlibrary loan, or contact the Anthropology Librarian for additional help.
One of the great anthropology collections is at Harvard University in the Tozzer Library. The library collects comprehensively in all four subfields of anthropology and covers a broad geographic range with special emphasis on indigenous peoples of the Americas. Tozzer Library is also renowned for their collections of primary sources and other rare materials (e.g. Maya language materials, Spanish Colonial documents, and field notes).
This catalog searches the collections of more than 9,000 member institutions, including most of the major libraries in North America, and many in Western Europe and Australia. If you can't find what you're looking for at Emory or in the Tozzer Library at Harvard, this is a great place to look.
Archeological texts are distributed throughout the library collection and are often classified by the geographic region of study. If you like to browse, consult the Library of Congress Classification Outline to identify relevant call ranges beyond Anthropology (GN1-890). For example:
Note on LC classification and subject headings: Remember that while the LC classification system organizes a diverse body of knowledge, like all classification systems it reflects the worldview of those who created it and therefore is biased in some ways. This is particularly important to keep in mind when looking for material related to Indigenous peoples, LGBTQ topics, and interdisciplinary topics. Kam (2007) provides a brief overview of some of the issues.
