The Anthropological Index of the Royal Anthropological Institute: The Anthropological Index Online

"The Anthropological Index Online is based on the journal holdings of The Anthropology Library at the The British Museum (formerly Museum of Mankind) which receives periodicals in all branches of anthropology, from academic institutions and publishers around the world. The data is (c) RAI and use is permitted for educational non-commercial purposes (including private study). Regular or heavy educational/academic use is licensed by the payment of a subscription. Commercial institutions wishing to use Anthropological Index Online are asked to contact the RAI to arrange access. Detail of conditions of use and copyright During 2000 and early 2001 a retrospective conversion was undertaken which has added some 100,000 records going back to 1957. These were originally published on paper as vols 1-32 of the Anthropological Index. As part of this work we have modified the existing data to enable searching by the language of the article. The retrospective conversion has been enabled by grants to the Royal Anthropological Institute from the Getty Foundation, ESRC (UK), the Mellon Trust, the Pilgrim Trust and the Marsh Christian Trust for which we are extremely grateful. The main work of the conversion was undertaken by the UK Higher Education Digitisation service (HEDS). The online data is being regularly updated, and other improvements are planned. Currently data is available without the full accents - we welcome feedback to help us choose the way of representing accented charactors that is accessible to most of our users - which will change with time.
