Library Services to Indigenous Populations: Viewpoints and Resources; Kelly Webster, Editor.
"This bibliography affirms the mandate of librarianship to reach out to all people and helps lead the way down old paths that we must learn." --Kathleen de la Peña McCook, Distinguished University Professor, University of South Florida
Kelly Webster, 2004-2005 president of the American Indian Library Association, has edited and annotated a comprehensive bibliography that addresses the library and information needs of indigenous people around the world. Produced in collaboration with six individuals noted for their commitment to serving indigenous people and for a passion to extend library service, Library Services to Indigenous Populations is a vital resource to students of library and information studies, to librarians planning to establish and expand services, and to cultural anthropologists who recognize the value of preserving and sustaining the diversity of humankind.
A project of the Library Services to American Indians Subcommittee of the ALA Office for Literacy and Outreach Services, it has been compiled in response to the OLOS mission of supporting and promoting literacy and equity-of-access initiatives for traditionally underserved populations.
