Trial: Anthropology Plus

We have access to EBSCO's Anthropology Plus database as a trial, March 26 - May 25, 2015.  Give it a try, and send your comments to

Link to Anthropology Plus.

Description (from EBSCO):

As a compilation of the Royal Anthropological Institute’s Anthropological Index and Harvard University's Anthropological Literature databases, Anthropology Plus is the world’s most comprehensive index covering the fields of anthropology, archaeology, and related interdisciplinary research. This database offers worldwide indexing of journals from the early 19th century to today, providing extensive indexing of journal articles, reports, and commentaries.

While this database doesn't provide any new full-text documents, the search engine is more powerful, user-friendly, and responsive than our existing resources - and it includes direct links to full-text in other EBSCO databases, as well as to Get It! Trent.

We're considering replacing the existing Abstracts in Anthropology and Anthropological Index Online with this.
