AAA is pleased to offer anthropologists who do not have access to a college or university library, a virtual collection, called the Online Research Library. This database includes more than 5,060 titles -- more than 3,600 in full text -- and we encourage you to look at this list of titles in the journal package before deciding to purchase unlimited access for one year. The Excel spreadsheet is lengthy; you may want to search it by keyword (Ctrl + F).
The Online Research Library provides an incredible value for any anthropologist without access to library collections and can help anthropologists at all levels in their careers! Surveyed members have already expressed their enthusiasm and excitement for the library:
"This is a fantastic idea that will enable anthropologists outside the academy to participate in the discipline in a more equitable manner than currently exists."
"I think this is a great idea! This would help anthropologists who graduate from PhD programs and are still looking for jobs but do not have ready access to journals online."
"The Research Library would be a tremendous assistance in my work! And of great value to those of us who reside outside of the US."
