These databases are all subscription resources paid for by the library and your tuition. I'm recommending them as your librarian because they will work for most anthropology topics and assignments at CSUDH. Most academic research is only available through expensive subscriptions, however, that's changing with the open access movement. To learn more about open access publishing models and how can you find and support freely available research check out our Open Access guide.
If a book or article isn’t available through one of the library’s subscriptions, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan. Interlibrary Loan is a resource sharing service with libraries across the country that provides research materials at no cost to you. If you're requesting an article or book chapter, you'll receive a copy as a PDF.
First, check to see if it's available in OneSearch or another library database. Look for the Find It @ CSUDH Lib button.
