New Trial Databases

Please try our new Trial Databases that we have temporary access to through our arrangement with our consortiium AMICAL. Currently these work only on campus, but they are available for all students, staff, and faculty. These can be accessed from any page of the library catalog.

"ARTstor is a digital library of nearly one million images in the areas of art, architecture, the humanities, and social sciences with a set of tools to view, present, and manage images for research and pedagogical purposes."
ARTstor is available to AUR users until the end of 2009.

eHRAF (Human Relations Area Files) is housed at Yale is provided in two parts: World Cultures and Archaeology. These are available until Dec. 31, 2008.

"eHRAF World Cultures is a cross-cultural database that contains information on all aspects of cultural and social life. The annually-growing eHRAF database is unique in that the information is organized into cultures and ethnic groups and the full-text sources are subject-indexed at the paragraph level."
"eHRAF Archaeology is a cross-cultural database containing information on the world's prehistory. This annually-growing eHRAF database is organized by archaeological traditions. The full-text sources are subject-indexed at the paragraph level. eHRAF Archaeology is a unique resource designed to facilitate comparative archaeological studies.?
