Finding Relevant Books

The study of human diversity is interdisciplinary, meaning that you may need to  conduct research in other areas, such as sociology, psychology, art, religion, etc. Use the keyword search in the Library Catalog to experiment with various search terms. Try as many as come to mind when thinking about your research topic. If necessary, consult your instructor or subject librarian for assistance with possible search terms.

TIP! Once you identify a relevant book in the catalog, click on the blue Subject term to bring up other books in that same category.
