Collection Policy for AMERICAN INDIAN STUDIES

General Purpose

The American Indian Studies Collection of Parks Library is designed to support study, instruction, and research in the interdisciplinary field of American Indian Studies at the higher education level. American Indian Studies materials are defined as those materials dealing with the experiences of American Indian peoples indigenous to the United States and its border regions(Canada, Mexico, Latin America). Collection emphasis is on the social sciences and the humanities; scholarly and authoritative informational works, appropriate for use at undergraduate, graduate,and research levels, are selected. Primary clientele of this collection are students and faculty in the American Indian Studies Program, students enrolled in classes meeting the University's diversity requirement, and all others interested in American Indian perspectives and contributions. Since patrons represent a wide variety of demands, resources not specifically related to the curriculum may also be provided.
