Guide to sources on Anthropology

4 Branches of Anthropology

Anthropology is the study of what makes us human.

The field is commonly divided into four more specific areas of study: 

Cultural / Social - Comparative study of cultures around the world

Biological / Physical - Comparative study of human attributes, past and present

Linguistic - Study of spoken language and how it influences social life

Archaeology - Comparative study of past cultures through their material remains


Each of these areas can be further divided into very specific focuses. Read more about the history and types of anthropology on the National Geographic page, History and Branches of Anthropology

Dogwood Digital Library - Previously OverDrive


Dogwood Digital Library, formerly OverDrive, provides the same great reading experience as before, but there's more to love. We've joined with other community college libraries across the state to leverage our collective buying power to provide access to more titles than we could purchase on our own. 

You can read the titles you borrow in your browser, send select titles to your Kindle, or use the convenient Libby App. Books are checked out for three weeks and are eligible for renewal as long as there are no holds placed on the title. 

If you don't see what you're looking for on the platform, let us know, and we'll get it for you if it's available for addition to the platform.
