With a team of 12 employees, Human Relations Area Files is a small, non-profit organization. We service over 500 academic member institutions from around the world. We care about our members and pride ourselves in providing personalized support for librarians, faculty, students, researchers and anyone else who uses the eHRAF databases.

Faculty support: Looking for new teaching ideas? We’ll give suggestions on how to incorporate eHRAF in a course curriculum and/or syllabus. Free webinars for student classes and customized video tutorials are available. Online student exercises can be found here.

Research support: Searching eHRAF for cultures and subjects/words at the paragraph-level is a unique concept. We’d be happy to help faculty, researchers, students, and other users with search tips and strategies to optimize this powerful online resource.

Library support: Informative and interactive webinars are available for librarians to discuss how eHRAF is organized, its unique search methodology, and its interdisciplinary uses. The webinars can be one-on-one, or scheduled for a group.
