Library Service to the American Indians in the Southwest.
Sargent, Nanette
Information about library service to American Indians is poorly documented and difficult to obtain because there has been so little of it. There have been no libraries for Indians because there were no books in Indian languages, and no one to read those in the English language. The governmental programs to educate Indian children have not failed entirely, but have only begun to meet the needs of all children. To narrow the search for library service to Indians requires a close study of the entire area of Indian education. There is a whole plethora of material on the subject of education, but little on the role played by libraries. To find out what has been done in the way of library service to Indians, particularly in the Southwest, letters were written to the state librarians of New Mexico, Arizona, Kansas, California and Colorado, and others concerned with Indian affairs. The information on existing services and programs which resulted from these inquiries is presented as the major portion of this paper. (Author/SJ)
