BIO 3000 Introduction to Biological Anthropology

Interlibrary Loan

If we do not subscribe to a journal — and you cannot find free full text using Google Scholar —  try requesting an Interlibrary Loan (ILL).  We will find a library that subscribes to the journal and ask them to scan and send a copy.  ILL's can arrive in as little as 24 hours, although it is a good idea to give at least 4 business days for articles to arrive.  When the article arrives you will receive an email with download instructions.

Request an Interlibrary Loan

Area Libraries

If you haven't left time to request your articles through Interlibrary Loan, you may want to plan a trip over to the University of Washington.  If you go ito their libraries n person, you may request temporary wi-fi access, that will allow you access to many of their resources.  You can search their catalog before going to see if they have the full text you need.

This is an example of the scholarly conversation that is part of scientific research, and describes the use of the literature to create a paradigm shift in scientific understanding.

Note:  the people (and professional fields) who come together to contribute to the discussion, and what happened when the author returned to the literature.
