Anthropology Collection Policy

Acquisitions Sources

An approval plan supplying books and book notices exists with GOBI  for North American and British publications. Book notification plans are in place several foreign vendors, particularly in Europe. Materials are also acquired directly from individual publishers. Gift materials are added to the collections when appropriate.

Selection Tools

Materials are routinely selected by examining book notification slips from all of the above-mentioned approval plans, publishers catalogs, fliers, and other announcements. Also, book and journal reviews from the following list of journals are regularly consulted: Choice; American Anthropologist; American Ethnologist; American Journal of Archaeology; Language; Journal of Linguistic Anthropology.
Museum publications from a large variety of sources are consulted, including the Canadian Museum of Civilization, the American Museum of Natural History, the Smithsonian Institution, and the University of Pennsylvania Museums.
Individual faculty requests are also an important source of notification, and suggestions are welcome from all members of the Tulane community.
