Find scholarly books and articles

For your two essay assignments, you are required to use at least three sources from scholarly archaeological journals and books. In addition to using the main search box on the library homepage, try searching for these sources here: 


  • Don't forget to put and in between your search terms, and use quotation marks when you want to search for two words together. 
  • If the article seems too narrow, or too technical, read the abstract, introduction, or conclusion to get a good contextual overview of the topic.
  • Another place to search is directly in the scholarly journal themselves. Try looking in Science or Journal of Archaeological Science, for example.

Cite your sources

Purdue's OWL is a great resource for help with using citations in research.
