About Human Relations Area Files (aka HRAF or eHRAF)

Human Relations Area Files, Inc. at Yale University collects publications on cultures of the world -- books, manuscripts, journal articles, and dissertations by anthropologists, sociologists, other social scientists, travelers, and missionaries, and indexes them at the paragraph level using a specially developed system of subject codes known as the Outline of Cultural Materials, or OCM).

In addition to the eHRAF: World Cultures database, Oberlin has the collection of HRAF material on microfiche.  Schedule an appointment with Megan Mitchell if you are interested in exploring the microfiche collection.
