Using the drop-down menu you may choose to search All USC Libraries or a specific library or collection. Choose Columbia Cooper Educational Films to see what films the library has available.
Be aware that the way you describe your topic is likely different than the way Library of Congress describes your topic. Library of Congress uses the term "Indians of North America" instead of "Native Americans". Searching for a particular ethnic group is recommended, ex. Catawba Indians.

Finding Ethnographies in USC libraries
Thomas Cooper Library collects a series of ethnographies called Case Studies in Cultural Anthropology. Search for the title "Case Studies in Cultural Anthropology" to find a list of these titles.
You can also try a keyword search for the name of the culture and the word "Ethnography" or "Ethnology". (Although Ethnology is a broader term, catalogers often use these terms interchangably when assigning subject headings.) Ex. ethnology and tonga OR ethnography and tonga
You can also browse our print copies of American Ethnologist, American Anthropologist, British Anthropology Journal, etc for reviews of ethnographies.
