Statewide Plan for the Development of Indian Library Services in the State of Wisconsin.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison. Div. of Library Services.
This document outlines a plan which was formulated in 1975 and revised in 1981, for the development and provision of library services to those American Indians who reside in the state of Wisconsin. The origin and background of the plan are reviewed, as well as its goals with respect to cultural sensitivity, Indian participation, library staffing, collection development, interlibrary cooperation, information services about Indians, funding, public relations, and other areas. Eight areas of priority for state-level action, including the establishment of an Indian Library Services committee, the development of information/media services in reservation and non-reservation Indian communities, and the recruitment, certification, and training of Indian library personnel, are presented along with short- and long-range plans for the achievement of these priorities. Guidelines for the development of library services in Indian communities are outlined, and the actions required to implement the guidelines are described. A 1981 map of Wisconsin public library systems, demographic information on Indians in Wisconsin, unemployment figures on Wisconsin Indian communities, and public school educational data on Wisconsin Indians are appended.
