Synopsis

Based on the growing interest in heritage preservation and Native information management as expressed by Native library users and managers, this monograph is a one-of-a-kind effort at consolidating the current information on this subject, previously only available scattered through periodical and other literature. Hills identifies the need for cross-cultural orientation for non-Native field workers, for libraries and librarians to become more community-minded, and for library education to be more field-responsive and active in researching future trends in library and information science management and provision. Contains three appendixes, which further elaborate on village libraries, provide examples of surveys to graduate library schools, and give notes on the Saami of Northern Scandinavia. In addition, a selectively annotated bibliography gives information on articles and resources through 1995. With index.
