The anthropology collection supports teaching, learning, and research through the Ph.D. level, with attention given to the UT Anthropology department’s main areas of study: social anthropology, archaeology, biological anthropology, linguistic anthropology, and cultural forms.
English is the primary language of collection, with a focus on studies concerning North America and South America, though materials on regions from around the world are collected. The interdisciplinary nature of anthropology compels several subject specialist librarians to work together to provide appropriate coverage for their constituencies, particularly in the social sciences.
Electronic and print format materials are collected to meet the needs of users. Periodicals and products of mainstream U.S. publishers are collected in electronic format, when available.
