Exclusive Programs & Discounts for Members Only

We are excited to start the New Year off with several exclusive member-only programs and discounts. In an effort to continue to provide future anthropologists with access to practical knowledge, we partnered with UMB Bank to offer a AAA Visa credit card. 100% of all royalties will support the AAA Intern Program which offers two undergraduate students the opportunity to participate in a six week program.

We are continuing our partnership with Mercer (formerly Marsh) to provide access to health, life, and dental insurance. Members will additionally begin to have discounted access to home and auto insurance through Liberty Mutual. Additional savings for travel and office supplies are accessible through Avis, Budget and Office Depot, respectively.

Humanities E-Book releases Round 11

The American Council of Learned Societies Humanities E-Book (HEB) released Round 11 of their online collection this August. These 353 titles bring the total of the volumes in the collection to 4,315. The new round includes additional titles from two of HEB’s original publishing partners, Oxford University Press and Harvard University Press, as well as books from new partners such as University of Toronto Press and Michigan State University Press.

All the titles in Humanities E-Book are available to American Anthropological Association members. The American Council of Learned Societies Humanities E-Book (HEB) makes individual subscriptions available through standing membership in any of the 72 ACLS constituent societies.

The subscription offers unlimited access to 4,300 cross-searchable, full-text titles across the humanities and related social sciences. The titles in HEB have been selected and peer reviewed by ACLS constituent learned societies for their continued value in teaching and researching. The collection comprises both in- and out-of-print titles ranging from the 1880s through the present, and includes many prize-winning works.

Individual subscriptions are ideal for those whose school might not yet have an institutional subscription to HEB or for individual members of a learned society who might not be affiliated with a subscribing institution. (A full list of subscribing institutions can be found on the HEB website.) Individual subscriptions are USD $40.00 for a twelve-month subscription. AAA members can sign up via the HEB website.

For more information about individual subscriptions, contact subscriptions@hebook.org.

JPASS – AAA’s newest benefit for members

In collaboration with JSTOR, AAA is pleased to offer you a special, discounted fee for JPASS, a new JSTOR access plan for individuals.


Designed for those without institutional access to the JSTOR archival collections, JPASS is ideal for AAA members working outside of the academy. It is also valuable for faculty members at institutions with limited access to JSTOR, and for adjuncts with sporadic access to library resources. Regardless of your institutional affiliation, JPASS serves as your personal library card to the rich selection of journals on JSTOR.

As part of your AAA membership, you are eligible to purchase a 1-year JPASS access plan for $99—a 50% discount on the listed rate. JPASS includes unlimited reading and 120 article downloads to more than 1,500 humanities, social science, and science journals in the JSTOR archival collections, including American Antiquity (full text content from 1935-2010), American Indian Quarterly (full text from 1974-2007), Anthropological Linguistics (full text 1959-2010), and American Journal of Archaeology (full text from 1897- 2007). Click here to view the complete JPASS journal list.

Log-in to AnthroGateway. On your My Information Page, click on the JPASS to purchase this members-only offer.
