The Laboratory of Anthropology Library has had an amazing number and variety of donors this year. Many estates from well known or even renowned scholars, retiring scholars, people moving and downsizing (including book editors offering brand new condition quality books) have been received. Many of the books this year are in Near Fine to As New gift quality condition.

Subject representation this year is very broad. Although there is particular strength in Southwestern materials, Native American (particularly Navajo), archaeology and anthropology materials, there is also a significant amount of Native American Art, contemporary art, history, literature, biography, golf, and much, much more. Listings can be found on the Laboratory of Anthropology Library's store.

Named Collections received in 2010 are:
Bertha P. Dutton (remaining estate with many obscure or scarce volumes)
Caroline Bower Olin Estate (Navajo scholar)
Nancy Fox (retired curator of the Museum of Indian Arts + Culture)
Stewart Peckham (retired former Director of the Laboratory of Anthropology)
