Online Anthropology Resources

This is by no means an extensive list and is primarily focused on North America. It does, however, some great jumping-off points for further research. Herewith:

AATA Online (from the Getty Institute. Contains over 130,000 abstracts of literature dealing with material culture);  American Museum of Natural History. Scientific Publications  (especially its Bulletin and Memoirs);  Anthropological Index Online (Covers hundreds of journals. Hosted by the Royal Anthropological Institute and the British Museum); Anthropology Explorer (An anthropology dictionary); Anthropological Resources on the Internet (from the American Anthropological Association); Bibliography of Alfred L. Kroeber (over 500+ citations); Smithsonian: ((Online Anthropology Databases (Portals into its vast collections.)

Also, do not forget to look at Smithsonian Contributions to Anthropology, especially Anthropology, History and American Indians: Essays in Honor of William Curtis Sturtevant (Contribution #44). Another valuable resource is its Bureau of American Ethnology; many of its publications are both groundbreaking and of historical importance. Look at the 200 volumes of the Bulletin (#200 is an index to the entire series); and peruse its Annual Reports from 1879 to 1964)). A wonderful, systematic listing of the contents of the Bulletin, Annual Report, and Contributions to Notth American Ethnology (with links) is available here.

Reference Bibliography of Franz Boas (Yale. Works by and about him); and Wenner-Gren Symposia (online access from 2010 – . This foundation is a major supporter of anthropological research, funding Current Anthropology.)
