Anthropology (Oxford English Dictionary):

 1. The study or description of human beings or human nature (generally, rather than as a distinct field of study; cf. sense 2); a theory or account of this, as held by a specific person or group.

 2b. The scientific study of the human race; the branch of science which investigates the human species as a part of the animal kingdom, including comparative anatomy and psychology of humans and their closest animal relatives, human palaeontology and ecology, theories of human evolution, and the development and variety of human populations and their societies and cultures. Also: this discipline as a subject of academic study.

You can find the general Anthropology area with the call number starting with "GN" for Anthropology and Prehistoric Archaeology, "CC" for general Archaeology, and "GR" for mythology and folklore on the second floor of the library.
