Library Programs. Library Services for Indian Tribes and Hawaiian Natives Program. LSCA Title IV. Review of Program Activities, 1989.
Fine, Beth, Comp.; Villines, Dianne, Comp.
The lack of library facilities, books and documents, and trained personnel are significant obstacles to Indian Tribes and Hawaiian Natives engaged in developing and strengthening public library services. The Library Services for Indian Tribes and Hawaiian Natives Program is the only Federal library program that provides direct grant funds for establishing or improving public library services for these two groups. This report provides information on the fifth year of funding (fiscal year 1989) of the Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) Title IV grant programs, which provide appropriations for the two groups under two program cycles: Basic Grants and Special Projects. An explanation of the Basic Grants program is presented, with an appended table showing a breakdown of funding by activity for each basic grant. Highlights are then given of each Special Projects award including the exemplary Special Projects grants of the Three Affiliated Tribes and the Nisqually Tribe; in addition, a map and a funding summary for fiscal years 1985-1989 are provided. Thirteen Hawaiian Natives projects, funded under the Basic Grant program, are also listed; information provided for each project includes its funding, its objective, and a brief summary of activities to be accomplished. An appendix summarizes the basic grants for fiscal year 1989 and indicates the assessment, training, personnel, library materials, dissemination, transportation, special programs, and construction costs for each tribe, by state.
