Human Relations Area Files (HRAF) are a specifically organized collection of thousands of full-text sources on almost 400 cultures worldwide. An online version, eHRAF World Cultures, are available to affiliates. Many of the older installments are only available in print or microfiche. The microfiche version of HRAF is located in the Social Sciences, Health, and Education Library (SSHEL).
For more information see SSHEL’s Guide to the Human Relations Area Files.
Note: Citations for sources translated for HRAF should contain translation information. Example: Naroll, Raoul, Explorations in Bali. Boston: Routledge, 1982. [Translated for the Human Relations Area Files by Margo E. Fenton, 1985.]
