Indigenous Government and Law in the Americas

All the handouts for the following TS program are now on the TS website:

Indigenous Government and Law in the Americas. Library of Congress Online
Classification: A Gateway to Web Resources? (TS-SIS Program)

Tuesday, July 17, 2007 9:00-10:30 a.m. EMCC Room 224

A growing need to provide access to legal records of indigenous
governments in the Americas has challenged libraries. How to broaden and
enhance access to these materials will be discussed by librarians expert
in cataloging, collection building and digital projects. LC's new online
Classification schedule for the Law of Indigenous Peoples in the Americas
(KIA-KIX) was explored for the various ways in which this tool can be used
in capturing and presenting digital copy of these hard to-come-by sources
and other web resources, institutional or tribal.

Please print your own copies and bring to the program.
