It is currently located near Yale University in New Haven, CT. Originally, the materials were on paper, but later the information was preserved on microfilm. Now many of the files are accessible on an electronic data base. Besides the ethnographic data, archaeological files are also available.

HRAF is an acronym for Human Relations Area Files, a non-profit institution founded in 1949 at Yale University.
HRAF is a consortium of educational, research, and cultural organizations, and government agencies; its mission is to encourage and facilitate the study of human culture, society, and behavior.
HRAF files used to be available on microfiche (of which we have sporadic coverage at LSU; this coverage is identified in the sources accompanying the Files in Room 53).
