Tozzer Library is the primary repository for books and other materials in anthropology at Harvard including all subfields of the discipline (social or cultural anthropology, anthropological linguistics, archaeology – emphasizing prehistoric archaeology of both the New and Old Worlds – and biological or physical anthropology).

The library was founded in 1866 as the Peabody Museum Library and collects materials in all formats and in many languages on peoples and cultures in both the ethnographic present and as represented in the archaeological record throughout the world.  A noteworthy area of focus since the late 19th century has been civilizations in the New World, especially Mesoamerica (southern Mexico and Central America).
