Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 078640308X, Hardcover)

This work examines how libraries traditionally provided service to Native Americans and how such service could be improved through an understanding of Indian traditions. Chapters present an overview of library services before World War II, the various methods Native Americans have used to preserve their heritage, and the importance of the preservation and maintenance of artifacts. The current state of library services is then explored, followed by a chapter on how new technologies are being used to expand and improve services. A final chapter offers guidelines for collection management.
