Books are an important part of anthropology research.  In addition to the books in its collection, RIT Libraries provides access to books at other institutions through ConnectNY and Interlibrary Loan.

You can search for your culture as a keyword, looking for any book that uses your term in the title, author, publisher, subject, or notes field.

Or, you can search for your culture as a subject, finding any book that is about your culture regardless of the words used to describe the text.
