Literature search for anthropology students on their Master's

Literature search for anthropology students on their Master's In-Person

This course is aimed at anthropology students who are in the process of writing their project design for their Master's thesis.

Take a course at the library and get a brush-up on your literature search skills - and learn some new ones - so you can successfully seach for literature for your project design and further into your Master's programme.

We will help you explore your topic, show you how to use different search strategies, and tools, which will give you the skills to effectively locate relevant literature. 

We will explore how to: 

  • Open up your topic and your field through handbooks and reference works
  • Use search tools in databases such as Anthropology Plus 
  • Search within cross-disciplinary databases 

The course will consist of a presentation where we will go through the tools and skills needed for literature search. Afterwards we will break into a workshop format where you have time to work with your skills with help from your friendly librarian. 

Please bring your computer - exercises for use in the workshop will be send out a day ahead. 

This will be the last literature search course aimed at anthropology students this semester - so make sure to get a spot.



For help with reference management, we recommend you to take a course in Zotero.

For help using qualitative analysis software we recommed a course in Nvivo

This course will be held at the Faculty of Social Sciences Library, Gothersgade 140, 1st floor, Anatomisalen.
