Editorial Reviews


Tribal Libraries, Archives, and Museums is definitely not a traditional reference book. It is more accurately described as a collection of articles on several themes related to indigenous information centers. It should be on the reading list of all information professionals who work or who are preparing to work with indigenous populations. (American Reference Books Annual)

[R]eaders will realize that the concepts presented within...are about working within the bounds of an established profession and its lexicon of terminology. Loriene Roy, Anjali Bhasin, and Sarah K. Arriaga weave together stories from experienced authors who have faced–and are facing–significant challenges within their information centers. . . . A title such as this is long overdue. . . Tribal Libraries, Archives, and Museums, provide the reader with a broad understanding of the contextual environment in which tribal materials are preserved and made available. Through personal experiences and observations, tribal information professionals will be made aware of potential pitfalls and how to avoid them through the voices of experts and colleagues who have experienced successes and challenges....One of the most noteworthy aspects of this title is its timeliness. . . . this title provides an intimate snapshot of current challenges and those that lie ahead. (The American Archivist)

There is something of use for everyone who reads this book, divided into four broad areas: The Tribal Community Library: Context and Cases; Service Functions of Tribal Information Centers; Tribal Archives: Collections and Functions; and Working in Tribal Libraries and Archivesthe. With several standout chapters Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums: Preserving Our Language, Memory, and Lifeways fills a much-needed void, primarily for tribal professionals, but also for other individuals working with Tribal Archives, Libraries and Museums (TALM). (Archival Issues)
