eHRAF World Cultures
HRAF is an acronym for Human Relations Area Files, a non-profit institution founded in 1949 at Yale University. HRAF is a consortium of educational, research, and cultural organizations, and government agencies; its mission is to encourage and facilitate the study of human culture, society, and behavior. This mission is accomplished mainly through the compilation, indexing, and distribution of a collection of ethnographic and other texts that are indexed by culture and subject. Today, HRAF has over 400 member institutions located in over 30 nations. In its early years the collection was distributed on paper slips. In 1958, HRAF began to reproduce the paper slips on microfiche. Microfiche reproduction ended in 1991, and all new material as well as retrospective conversion and updating of existing material began with the release of eHRAF on CD-ROM in April 1995. (eHRAF stands for the electronic collections of HRAF.) Currently HRAF has collections of ethnography, available on both CD-ROM and WWW. In 1998 HRAF began distributing a collection of archaeology in both formats. While all material currently on microfiche remains available on the fiche format, no new microfiche installments are being produced and all material added after 1991 is available only in electronic form.
