ANT 455/585: Current Issues in Primate Behavior

Dr. Marcela Benitez, Spring 2022

Call Numbers for Anthropology

There is no easy way to browse through anthropology books on the library shelves. General books on anthropology are in the call number range "GN". However, most anthropology books are scattered across the collection. For example, anthropological ethnographies written about cultures are classified with the books about the country/region of the culture (e.g. Africa in "DT"; Asia, "DS"; Latin America, "F") and books from the four fields of anthropology could be classified in almost any call number depending on the subject (e.g. primates mostly in "QL"). Therefore, always search the catalog in addition to browsing the stacks.

Finding Books and Films

Use the library catalog to find books, journals, videos, government documents, microfilm collections and other materials at the Emory libraries, which include Woodruff, Pitts Theology, Health Sciences, McMillan Law, Science Commons, and Oxford libraries.

Beyond Emory

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.

Tozzer Library
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.

DVDs and Streaming Media

Emory also owns many DVDs related to anthropology and animal behavior. These are included in the catalog, but may be difficult to identify. Contact the Anthropology Librarian if you need help identifying films on your topic.
