Promoting Indian Library Use. Guide Number 7.
Townley, Charles T.
Individuals, organizations, and American Indian tribes are rapidly recognizing the value of libraries. They are recognizing that libraries and the information services which they offer are necessary to meet Indian goals. Specific sensitivity to Indian ways and alternatives is just developing as library and information services develop in Indian communities. A series of 11 guides have been developed to provide initial direction and alternatives to those planning or engaged in developing Indian library and information systems. This guide, 7th in the series, identifies and briefly describes library service components which have demonstrated potential for meeting Indian informational needs. Among these components are: the library hours, circulation policy, library rules, reference services, story hours, and educational programs. Two types of services are discussed: (1) those which take place in the library and (2) those which take place outside the library. (NQ)
