Institute Library Classification System

"The Institute Library’s classification system is unique. It was created by our first professional librarian, William A. Borden, who served as librarian between 1897- and 1903-1910.

"eHRAF World Cultures is an online cross-cultural database that contains information on all aspects of cultural and social life.
