Renewal pricing is now available for eHRAF (the Electronic Human Relations Area Files). There are two separate collections: eHRAF Archaeology and eHRAF World Cultures. 

Annual pricing has remained stable, there is no increase over last year's pricing.

Please note that as of 2019, eHRAF is also offering a perpetual access option. It is one of payment equivalent to 20x the annual fee.  Perpetual membership to eHRAF World Cultures and/or eHRAF Archaeology includes all future updates to our ethnographic and/or archaeological collections without additional dues and fees.  Updates include additional cultures (traditions in eHRAF Archaeology), new documents added to existing collections, and software improvements in the core application that support searching and browsing in eHRAF World Cultures and/or eHRAF Archaeology. Institutions can shift at any time to perpetual. 

These databases are made available to BC ELN partner libraries through a national site license negotiated on behalf of Consortia Canada by COPPUL. All BC COPPUL members are asked to send their responses to BC ELN.
