This guide to sources for San Diego (California) State University students doing library research on topics related to American Indian Studies begins by noting that information on North American Indians can be found in a variety of subject disciplines including history, anthropology, education, sociology, health care, law, business, and politics. The sources listed are annotated, and include reference sources; bibliographies; research library catalogs; magazine, journal, and newspaper indexes; computer databases; and U.S. Government, California state government, and United Nations publications. Additional sources suggested include audiovisual materials, biographical sources, book reviews, curriculum collections, interlibrary loan, the juvenile collection, and microform collections. Information is also provided on the San Diego State University Library and the University's American Indian Studies Department. Appendixes contain a list of Library of Congress Subject Heading subdivisions for the heading "Indians of North America"; the Library of Congress classes which encompass this topic; maps showing the distribution of major Indian tribes in San Diego county and the Southwest; a chart showing Southern California reservation populations; community information and referral sources; and financial aid information for Indian college students. A subject index concludes the guide. (MAB)
