Contained within this document are selected resources at the Monmouth University Library, useful for locating information about commodities as a topic in anthropology. For additional resources, search the Library catalog or call the reference desk at 732.571.3438.
Starter Resources are very broad-based, general resources that are used only in the earliest stages of research when the researcher is seeking an overview of a topic or is attempting to narrow an overly broad topic. In the context of college-level research assignments, they are merely gateway resources and as such, should not be used in place of in-depth, substantive sources. See the other tabs for a selection of books, databases, and websites that offer more detailed, focused information.
If you're just starting your research, and have no experience with writing and researching in Anthropology, try using the Credo Reference database. Credo Reference is a general reference resource. Its full-text content covers every major subject, including history.
