Cultural Themes.
Roy, Loriene, Comp.
Part of a larger report on the Four Directions Project, an American Indian technology innovation project, this section includes 10 "pathfinders" to locating information on Native American cultural themes. The pathfinders were designed by students in the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Texas at Austin in response to specific requests by educators in reservation schools. The pathfinders are bibliographic instructional aids that outline methods to locate information on topics of interest to a particular client. Each pathfinder includes an introduction that describes the nature of the topic, scope of the pathfinder, assessment of client needs, and steps taken in identifying and evaluating relevant resources; an annotated bibliography of 15-25 resources, including print reference works, monographs, indexes, journal titles, electronic resources, and organizations; and the pathfinder proper, a guide to locating resources on the topic. The pathfinders are: (1) "Cahokia Mounds: A Pathfinder for High School Students" (Timothy Bullard); (2) "The Native American Boarding School Experience" (Lisa Bier); (3) "The Native American Boarding School Experience: Resources on the Internet. A Pathfinder" (Laura Tyner); (4) "Native American Sayings, Phrases and Quotations on the Internet: A Pathfinder" (Martin Corrigan); (5) "Native American Music: Information Available through the Internet" (Lilia Z. K. Bartoszek); (6) "Sweetgrass: A Pathfinder" (Patricia Ingram); (7) "Alternatives to Drinking for Native American Youth: Pathfinder" (Wade E. Osburn); (8) "Heavy Drinking: Understanding Alcohol Abuse through Literature. A Pathfinder" (Rex Pyle); (9) "Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: Resources Available on the Internet. A Pathfinder" (Arlene Lucio); and (10) "A Pathfinder on Medicinal Plants" (Kierstin Child). (SV)
