The National Indian Education Association (NIEA) was awarded a grant by the Bureau of Libraries and Learning Resources of the United States Office of Education to identify library and information needs of Indian people and to establish, operate, and evaluate three demonstration sites. Phases one and two of the project consisted of the identification and establishment of the three sites: Rough Rock Community School, Arizona; St. Regis Mohawk Reservation, New York; and Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, North Dakota. Phase three concerned itself with the operational aspects of Indian library and information services at these sites. Activities during this reporting period included collection expansion, the addition of nonprint services, and museum and radio programs. Problems of community political controversy, vandalism, and finance were also dealt with. Some general conclusions on Indian library service were drawn from the experiences at the three sites. The Library Project began an active dissemination sites. Appendixes to this report contain statistics and narrative evaluations of the three sites, plus many project dissemination materials.
