2. DATABASES
A. HUMAN RELATIONS AREA FILE RECORDS ADDED TO URSUS
   Fogler Library is pleased to announce that records for more than 5,000 books, book selections, field notes, manuscripts, and articles published as part of the Human Relations Area Files microfiche collection have been added to URSUS. The Human Relations Area Files collate and code research in cultural anthropology in order to facilitate comparative studies of society and culture. Many unique titles not owned by the library in print may now be more readily identified and used. Fogler Library also provides access to the database Electronic HRAF at www.library.umaine.edu/indexesdb/Indexes.asp. Electronic HRAF picks up where the fiche left off in 1991, and at this time there is very little duplication between the two formats, so a more comprehensive culture search will use both resources. For assistance with HRAF, please contact Joe Fernandez (joe.fernandez@umit.maine.edu or 581-3611) or the Reference Desk (581-1673).
