This guide is intended to help students begin researching topics related to Ancient Mesoamerica. It is specific to sources available at Sacramento State University. The guide is broken up the research process, the ANTH 121 assignment, and selected resources by culture. The guide is not intended to be comprehensive.

The Internet Resources page was created by Diane McDonnell. The rest by H. Reza Peigahi, Anthropology Librarian.
