Human Relations Area Files (HRAF)
Founded in 1949 at Yale University, HRAF is a not-for-profit membership consortium of universities, colleges, and research institutions. Its mission is to provide information that facilitates the cross-cultural study of human behavior, society and culture. In the 1930s, behavioral scientists at Yale’s Institute of Human Relations started to develop a classification of cultural information by subject, providing quick access to research materials. HRAF grew out of these efforts. HRAF has two electronic collections: the eHRAF Collection of Ethnology and the eHRAF Collection of Anthropology. Both are fulltext. Availability of HRAF collections is limited to members of the HRAF consortium.
