Books for Ethnographic Writing

Academic Sources

Books provide comprehensive, broad coverage of a given topic, including background or historical information.  Many, but not all, books are written by scholars and published by university presses and scholarly associations. These would be considered scholarly, academic and authoritative sources.

You can find ethnographies in the WorldCat with a Keyword search.  However, many ethnographies DO NOT have the word "ethnography" in their titles, and if you ONLY do a keyword search expect to miss  sources you otherwise would have found.

Try using: subject headings (SU:) Ethnology, Rio Grande -- Ethnology, Australia, etc.
