Answer

Absolutely!  We have a number of ebook resources available to you, listed on this libguide.  I recommend starting with eBrary – it’s the largest collection of ebooks.  You could also use IU’s catalog, IUCAT – when you do, click ‘ebook search’ on the right side of the screen to limit only to ebooks.

 

A search for “women and prehistory” gives us a number of ebooks, some of which include:

 

Archaeology of Household Activities by Allison Penelope

 

Archaeologies of Sexuality by Robert Schmidt

 

Archaeology and Women: Ancient and Modern Issues by Sue Whitehouse Hamilton

 

Encyclopedia of Women in the Ancient World by Joyce Salisbury

 

From Eve to Dawn, Volume 1: A History of Women by Marilyn French

 

Hunter-Gatherers in History, Archaeology and Anthropology by Alan Barnard

 

Manifesting Power: Gender and the Interpretation of Power in Archaeology by Tracy Sweely

 

We can find more books by altering the keywords.  Let me know if these sorts of sources aren’t what you need.  I’d be glad to help in your search.

 

Cordially,

    Updates to Database Access

    Database Updates:


    Problem Accessing Fulltext in the ERIC Database

     

    From their website:

     

    Dear ERIC Community,

    In early August we discovered that sensitive personally identifiable information appeared in some full text documents contained in the ERIC collection. Specifically, social security numbers and other highly sensitive information were found in multiple documents and in a way that could not easily be isolated. For that reason, we had to temporarily disable access to many full text documents.

    Although these documents had been publicly available in microfiche for many years, the advent of Internet search engines has made it easier to find this information. Our number one concern is to ensure that any full-text documents we provide do not violate any individual's privacy. We believe that if any of us were to have our privacy compromised by an ERIC document, we would want the same consideration.

    We are seeking to restore access to documents as soon as possible. In order to restore access to ERIC, we have to check every document to see if it contains personally identifiable information. Due to the quality of many of the documents, a large portion of the search has to be done by hand. This is a large undertaking and we are in the process of hiring a team to help restore access in a fast and responsive manner. We hope to get this team in place by late September and releasing large numbers of ERIC documents by the end of October. We will continue to release documents after that point on a rolling basis.

    To minimize the burden on our users, we will prioritize searching the documents that users request. If you would like to request a PDF to be returned online, please email ERICRequests@ed.gov with the record number (such as ED263102). Documents will be returned on a rolling basis and may take several weeks, but we are working as fast as possible.

    We are sorry for the inconvenience and want to thank you for bearing with us through this unexpected delay.
