Minorities in the United States: Guide to Resources.
Smith, Jessie Carney
The approach of this publication to the study of minority cultures is through an introduction to the literature of certain minority groups in the United States: native Americans, black Americans, Chinese, Japanese, and Puerto Ricans. It is intended primarily as a guide for libraries, library school students, library schools, other educators, and other students who are interested in bibliographic and other resources for the study of various minorities. Because this publication is prepared in the absence of a suitable textbook or guide to the bibliography of minority culture, it aims to lead the student of minority bibliography to the literature and the library collections on this subject. In the variety of subject areas covered, the work is immediately regarded as interdisciplinary as well as intercultural. The work utilizes a topical or structural approach, with each section containing a general overview of the particular minority group in question, a discussion of representative library collections which house significant resources on the topic, and an introduction to the subject approach to the study of the particular minority group. Following this discussion, a selective bibliography is given. (Author)
