Indigenous Peoples: Reference Books

This guide supports Prof. Ulrike Wiethaus' courses on Indigenous Peoples.

Reference Dept.

The reference department is located on the 4th floor of the Wilson Wing.  Upon entering the library, walk straight ahead until you see a wide stairway - at the top of the stairs, you'll find the reference department. 

Here, you'll find librarians at the reference desk who will be happy to help you find reference books or any other resources you need for your class work.  You are always welcome to contact me directly.
