KERRY D. FELDMAN CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY LABORATORY
The department's cultural anthropology laboratory has three computers with ATLAS software for qualitative analysis, and two of which also have digital video editing capabilities. The lab includes equipment for converting VHS to digital format, scanners, and voice recorders, in addition to a collection of reports on Alaska Native subsistence resources.
The Anthropology Department operates three archaeological laboratories on the UAA campus. The labs include workspace, reference libraries, photographic equipment, electrolysis, archaeological and faunal collections, and artifact storage. The department's zooarchaeological comparative collection specializes in large-mammal and Holocene-era fauna. The Cultural Resource Management (CRM) lab, added in 2004, additionally holds the Alaska Consortium of Zooarchaeology collection, which specializes in marine fauna of Alaska's southern coast.
Our department has recently opened a Geographic Information Systems laboratory for Anthropology graduate students, with four workstations and flatbed scanner. Anthropology also shares a 20-workstation GIS lab with the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies, also located in Beatrice McDonald Hall. The UAA campus additionally offers several computer labs, including a large GIS facility administered by the Geomatics department.
