Anthropology Collection Policy

Imprint Date Considerations

The majority of materials added to the collections will be materials published in the last 3-5 years, with an emphasis on the most current titles. Older materials will be added selectively, and out-of-print materials are generally added only to replace items lost or missing from the collections, unless specific requests have been made to fill gaps in the collections.

Chronological Period Considerations

Collection subject emphasis dates from the time of emergence of hominid forms, about five million years ago, to the present.
