Anthropology: Library Resources

A brief guide to the print and electronic anthropology collections of Campbell Library, Rowan University - with links to some other anthropology sites.


Anthropology books may be found throughout the Library of Congress's classification system which is used in Campbell Library. However, there are  two sections that are specific to anthropology: GN and CC.  These call numbers are shelved on the third floor of the library.
