In 2015, the Washington State Legislature passed SB5433 requiring the Since Time Immemorial Tribal Sovereignty curriculum be taught in every public K-12 classroom. This mandate provided both collection development challenges and opportunities for all types of libraries. As part of the plan for Central Washington University's Brooks Library to meet this challenge, Ginny Blackson applied for and received the 2016 Smithsonian Libraries’ Neville-Pribram Mid-Career Educators Award. The award provided the opportunity to conduct research at the National Museum of the American Indian and Vine Deloria, Jr. Library. This presentation focuses on the results of that research, including tools to build outstanding collections that include indigenous perspectives. The session explores ways to identify and evaluate Native American and Alaska Native resources.


This presentation was given as part of Emporia State University's School of Library and Information Management continuing education webinar series.
