SOAN 262: Anthropology of Health and Illness

For Professor Pamela Feldman Savelsberg - Winter 2022

Most Important Indexes

See full descriptions below.

Why Use Indexes?

Bibliographic databases, indexes and abstracts give you an organized entry point into periodical literature. Carleton does not own every journal title indexed in these sources. Check Catalyst to see if the library owns the journal you are looking for. If not, take advantage of our Interlibrary Loan Services.

Interpreting "Find It" Results (2022)

Scholarly journals are going to be found, in most cases, either online or in print.

Searching Catalyst and using the Find It button are the best ways to determine what kind of subscription the library has and how to get your hands (or eyes, as the case may be) on it.

Find It Button

Following are explanations of the different results you'll get using the Find It button.

 

Instant Electronic Access

When you click the "Find It!" button, you will be taken to a record for the article in Catalyst. That record will tell you whether this is available electronically, in print, both, or neither. If it is available, you will see a message "Online Access" near the top of the page.

Click the Online Access button and you should be taken straight to the article. 

If it doesn't work or you want to find other options, scroll down to see the electronic options for that article...

Follow a link and you'll be taken to the article.

 

Print Journals

If the library subscribes in print, you need to find the call number for the journal in Catalyst. Then go to the moving stacks on the 3rd floor of the library where the journals are. Catalyst shows the call number so you know where to find it on 3rd Libe.

If the print copy is only at St. Olaf, log in to Catalyst, then click the St. Olaf Library entry to expand it. Find the issue you need, then click the Request link to have the journal sent over to Carleton, where you can pick it up at the Circulation Desk.

Carleton Doesn't Subscribe

If Carleton doesn't subscribe to the journal for the issue you need, make a request through Interlibrary Loan.
