eHRAF Archaeology Access is now LIVE!

29 Apr 2024 2:04 PM | Dina Rivera (Administrator)

Understanding that obtaining research resources can be a challenge, the Register began offering Registrant access to JSTOR publications in 2021 and now are pleased to include Yale's Human Relations Area Files for Archaeology (eHRAF Archaeology) to assist our Registrants in necessary archaeological research.

The goal of the Human Relations Area Files (HRAF) is to foster an understanding of cultural diversity and commonality, both in the past and the present. To achieve this, they produce scholarly resources and infrastructure for research, teaching, and learning, and support and conduct original research on cross-cultural variation. The database is subject-indexed to the paragraph level by HRAF anthropologists, according to HRAF’s modified Outline of Cultural Materials (OCM). This comprehensive subject retrieval system extends search capability well beyond keyword searching, allowing for precise subject retrieval.

eHRAF Archaeology is organized by regions and archaeological traditions. An archaeological tradition is defined as a group of populations sharing similar subsistence practices, technology, and forms of socio-political organization, which are spatially contiguous over a relatively large area and which endure temporally for a relatively long period. Each tradition consists of a general summary and documents including books, journal articles, dissertations, and manuscripts.

We invite you to learn more about the traditions covered in the database and explore how eHRAF Archaeology can enhance your research.

We continue to look for ways to bring more benefits to your Register engagement. Please let us know if you have any suggestions, comments, or concerns!
