Search the Library's Catalog


Finding Ethnographic Sources

There are a couple ways to go about this. 

1. Go to the Library Homepage

2. Use your search terms plus the term "ethnography" in the center search box under the Atkins Library tab. 

3. On the left hand side with all of the limiters, go to the one titled Subject and click "show more". 

4. Scroll until you see "ethnography" as a subject heading. Check the box then click "apply filters" which should appear at the bottom of your screen. 

(If you change your keywords at the top search box, you will have to reapply the limiters each time). 

This means that the item was given the subject heading of ethnography. This is the simplest way of finding books and articles in the library search system that points you toward ethnographies. Then click the titles and read the description/abstract or browse the text to see if the authors employed proper ethnographic methods outlined in your course. 

Finding Books through Subject Headings

Start with a simple keyword search in the library catalog to identify one or more relevant books. Once you have located a relevant item, you can look at the item's Library of Congress Subject Headings within the item's full record tab and follow the subject heading links in the catalog to find other, similar or related books.

You can also refine your results by using the facets on the left side of the screen to narrow down by format, language, or additional subject headings.

Interlibrary Loan

Need a book or article that we don't own? Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service that lets students, faculty, and staff of UNC Charlotte borrow materials that are owned by libraries at other institutions.
