Registry of Anthropological Data Wiki

A cutting-edge tool for the new era of anthropology and the 21st century anthropologist! The American Anthropological Association has announce the creation of a Wiki to help researchers share and locate anthropological source materials.
Already the wiki houses information on fascinating research such as the Khipu Database and the Tsimane Amazonian Panel Study. If you have ethnographic or anthropological source materials you would like people to know about, such as information about the location of field notes, photographs, sound recordings, and other primary sources, then add it to the wiki and help others benefit.
