The Occasional Papers of the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center is a five-volume series published by the Center from 1989 to 1995 that include important contributions to Southwestern archaeological research by Crow Canyon staff and research associates including Bill Lipe, Michelle Hegmon, and Ricky Lightfoot.

And now, these groundbreaking research papers are finally online and available to download for free.

For many years, Crow Canyon has sold copies of the Occasional Papers in the campus gift shop, and we are proud every time we see a volume on our colleagues’ bookshelves. However, we have run out of several of the volumes, which is limiting access for researchers and the public alike—especially for the next generation of scholars who often prefer digital access.

To improve access to these important scholarly contributions, the Research Institute at Crow Canyon has digitized each of the Occasional Papers and posted them for free download as searchable PDFs.

Select printed volumes are still available for purchase in the Crow Canyon gift shop.
