Working with Library Agencies to Establish Indian Library Services. Guide 2: Establishing Indian Library Service--Part 2.
Libraries and information centers are rapidly becoming an integral part of American Indian life. Individuals, organizations, and tribes have come to the decision that libraries and the information services which they offer are necessary to meet Indian goals. Eleven guides have been developed to provide initial direction and provide alternatives to those planning or developing Indian library and information systems. Each guide discusses basic policies, initial steps, or discreet activities which appear to be essential to successful Indian library service. Three basic types of information are presented in these guides: (1) societal coping skills, (2) basic considerations for implementation, and (3) descriptions of services unique or critical to Indian libraries. Guide 2 of the series briefly discusses planning for Indian library service. Emphasizing coping with societal differences in Indian and library communities, this guide discusses the: first contacts with the Indian community, development of a relationship with the community, and goals of Indian library service. Sources for additional advice and information are given. (NQ)
