Tozzer Library

Catalogs and Published Guides


The HOLLIS catalog, with few exceptions, provides bibliographic access to the full range of materials acquired by Tozzer Library from 1867 to the present day; however, the following printed bibliographies still serve to supplement the information in HOLLIS.

Catalogue of the Library of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology
Boston: G.K. Hall
This is Tozzer Library's card catalog in book form; it was originally published in 1963 in 54 volumes and was followed by four multi-volume supplements published between 1970 and 1979. Researchers without access to HOLLIS will find this set in many large academic and public libraries, though copies owned by Harvard libraries are now stored in the Depository.

Anthropological Literature

Anthropological Literature is an international, research-level bibliographic index of articles from anthropological journals and edited monographs received by the Tozzer Library. This index was initiated by the first Peabody Museum Librarian, Roland B. Dixon, who served from 1906 to 1934 and represents over a century of publishing in anthropology.
