As of January 1, 2004, two RLG anthropology databases “Anthropological Literature” and “Anthropological Index, Royal Anthropological Institute” became available as a single database, RLG’s new “Anthropology Plus” database.

Anthropology Plus provides extensive worldwide indexing of journal articles, reports, commentaries, edited works, and obituaries in the fields of social, cultural, physical, biological, and linguistic anthropology, ethnology, archaeology, folklore, material culture, and interdisciplinary studies.  The index offers excellent coverage of all core periodicals in the field in addition to local and lesser-known journals.  Coverage is from the late 19th century to the present.

Suzanne Calpestri (UC Berkeley), who has been the Resource Liaison for the Anthropological Literature and Anthropological Index databases, will continue as the Resource Liaison for the new combined database.  Records in the Directory of CDL-Licensed Content and the Melvyl Catalog are currently being updated and will be available shortly.  In the meantime, you can access this new resource via the following PID http://uclibs.org/PID/34670 or URL [http://autoweb.rlg.org/cgi-bin/webscr/cucx/ewebyeq1a.scr]
