Tribal Archives, Libraries and Museums: A Librarian at Every Table. No. 264.

A National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, a federal funding agency in Washington DC, was awarded to the Arizona State Museum and the Arizona State Library under the category of library-museum collaborations.
The two year grant has three major activities: Model Projects of Collaboration, an updated national directory of tribal libraries, archives and museums, and a national conference of tribal libraries, archives and museums.
The conference is May 24-27, 2005. The conference will create a network of support for tribal cultural institutions and programs; articulate contemporary issues related to the development of tribal libraries, archives and museums and encourage collaboration among tribal and non-tribal cultural institutions. The goals of the conference will be achieved through plenary sessions with keynote speakers, information and resource tables, concurrent panels, affinity breakfasts, group meals and special events.
