Guide to Funding Sources for American Indian Library and Information Services.
Cawley, Rebecca, Comp.
Prepared to assist those responsible for library programs serving American Indian people, this funding guide identifies potential funding sources for these programs. Four documents consulted to develop the list of program and grants are: (1) "U.S. Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance"; (2) "Federal Governmental Health, Education, and Welfare Programs of Assistance to American Indians Residing on Federal Reservations"; (3) "Foundation Directory"; and (4) "Foundation Grants Index". The 30 programs and 6 foundations listed are of three basic types: (1) those which libraries apply to separately, (2) those where libraries are included as part of a larger institution, and (3) those where libraries can apply either way. Information given for each program includes: program title, its popular name, the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance number, total appropriations for program and total for Indian library purposes, nature and purpose of program, who can apply and how to apply, address for obtaining further information, printed information available, authorizing legislation, and administering agency. Information given for each foundation includes: foundation name, Foundation Index number, purpose, financial information, and sample grants given. (NQ)
