Anthropology is the comparative study of humanity, striving for a comprehensive and coherent view of humans within their natural and social environments.  Anthropologists use a wide variety of research techniques and draw on many disciplines, including natural and social sciences, and humanities to better understand the human species.   This guide directs you to anthropology related resources available to you on the web and through the River Campus Libraries.
