Anthropology-Specific Databases

JStor includes back issues from a wide variety of fields, but is a good resource for anthropology if you limit your search to anthropology journals. It does not have the most recent scholarship in any field, but connects to AnthroSource to provide recent articles.  For example, it only carries American Anthropologist up to 2004, but will provide a link directly to that article via AnthroSource when you search on campus. Not every journal offers this connection, and JStor does not include every journal available through AnthroSource.

We offer full-text access to AnthroSource, which includes the journals published by the American Anthropological Association. 

Due to software compatibility issues, the journals in AnthroSource don't work with the Find It @ UWG feature.  So, if your professor tells you to find an article in American Anthropologist from six months ago, we have it, but you have to come to AnthroSource to get it.  We're trying to find a better solution, but this works for now!
