Library Services for Indian Tribes and Hawaiian Natives Program: Review of Program Activities, 1990. Title IV, Library Services and Construction Act.
Fine, Beth, Comp.; Woolen, Viola, Comp.
THe Library Services for Indian Tribes and Hawaiian natives Program, Title IV of the Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA), supports public library services to Indians and Hawaiian Natives. Two types of grants--Basic Grants and Special Projects--encourage the development and improvement of public library services through selected project activities. All of these projects have one common goal: to develop and strengthen public library services in tribal communities facing various important disadvantages, such as the absence of adequate facilities, culturally significant books and documents, and trained librarians. This report provides information on the sixth year of funding (fiscal year 1990) of the Title IV programs. Overviews of both Basic Grants and Special Projects for the Indian Tribes are provided, and these are followed by the abstracts of the 13 projects. Information provided for each project includes the name and address of the grantee, the name and title of the project director, a summary of federal and tribal funding, the project period, and highlights of project activities. The name of the librarian is also provided for 10 of the projects. An overview of the Hawaiian Natives Program is followed by summaries of the eight projects supported by this program. It is noted that this program has continued to strengthen outreach programs, train library professionals, and augment specific resource collections appropriate to the cultural, historical, and informational needs of this group. Three appendices contain a list of tribes and awards by state and activities funded for FY 1990, a map of locations of special projects grants for FY 1985-1990, and a summary of special projects funding for FY 1985-1990.
