ANTHROPOLOGY DATABASES

Besides the Web of Knowledge, important resources for anthropologists include Anthro- Source, JSTOR, and Anthropology Plus.

AnthroSource and JSTOR

AnthroSource is a service of the American Anthropological Association and is available to all members of the association. The database covers 32 journals in anthropology. JSTOR is a full-text database that covers over 1,000 journals in humanities, social sciences, and sciences. Journals available through JSTOR, including many covered by AnthroSource, have a 3 to 5 year lag. Members of the AAA, however, can access all years of the journals covered by AnthroSource.

Anthropology Plus

Anthropology Plus combines two databases, Anthropological Index Online (which is free) and Anthropological Literature (by subscription). AIO is published by the Royal Anthropological Institute in London and indexes the periodicals in Museum of Mankind library of the British Museum. Besides the major journals for cultural anthropology and archeology, AIO covers small journals from developing nations and Eastern Europe. You’ll find articles in AIO from journals like the Annals of the Naprstek Museum in Prague, the Quarterly Journal of the Mythic Society, in Bangalore, and the Hong Kong Anthropology Bulletin. Anthropological Literature is the index for the books and articles at the Tozzer Library at Harvard University. The Tozzer is the largest collection of anthropological literature in the world, and Anthropological Literature grows by about 10,000 citations every year. It is particularly good for finding older materials on North American, Middle American, and South American archeology and ethnology.

If your library doesn’t subscribe to Anthropology Plus, you can use Anthropological Index Online free, here: http://aio.anthropology.org.uk/aio.
