Anthropology Collection Policy

Cooperative Resources and Related Collections

The Newcomb Archives &Vorhoff Special Collections holds a small collection of materials relevant to teaching in higher education.

The Howard-Tilton Memorial Library is one of 14 members of a cooperative consortium of southern research libraries called KUDZU, which includes a shared online catalog. Loan requests through this system receive priority processing and expedited two-day delivery. The library is also a member of the cooperative Center for Research Libraries (CRL) in Chicago, through which we may borrow a wide range of rare materials for our users. Undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty may borrow materials directly from the main library nearby at Loyola University of New Orleans through a reciprocal agreement called TU/LU. Graduate students and faculty may borrow materials at other New Orleans area academic libraries, and at other academic libraries throughout the state, through the LALINC consortium. For more information about cooperative borrowing privileges inquire at the library's Check-Out Desk.

All Tulane libraries contain material of potential value to the wide-ranging and often interdisciplinary interests of anthropologists. The Amistad Research Center Library and the Newcomb Archives are notable for their inclusion of sociocultural materials. The Matas Library of the Health Sciences is probably most useful for forensic and genetic materials. The Primate Center Library supports non-human primate research.
