A few handy tutorials
Anthropology is a wide-ranging field with four subfields: Cultural/Social Anthropology, Physical/Biological Anthropology, Linguistics, and Archaeology. Anthropology also overlaps with a number of other disciplines, including biology, ecology, sociology, psychology, economics, political science, women's studies and various area studies. Therefore, in anthropology, in order to do comprehensive research, it is important to think about which other disciplines are relevant to your topic.
General Reference Sources:
Reference sources such as encyclopedias, dictionaries, handbooks, or guides to the literature are a great way to find background information on a topic as well as build a vocabulary for searching in the discipline.
