Materials Selection for Indian Libraries. Guide Number 10: Materials Selection.
Christensen, Rosemary Ackley
Individuals, organizations, and American Indian tribes are recognizing that libraries and the information services which they offer are necessary to meet Indian goals. Although these goals may vary widely from improved access to education, cultural information, information on available social services, to leisure reading, they are all based in a component or institution designed to process information--a library. Therefore, the materials in the library must be carefully selected. Part of a series of 11 guides designed to provide initial direction and alternatives to those planning or developing Indian library and information systems, this guide discusses the evaluation of Indian materials and analyzes existing evaluation criteria developed by various groups. Several reviewing materials which can be used in selecting materials are discussed. Eleven sources for additional information are also cited. (NQ)
