Collection Development Policy Statement: Native American Studies

Out of Scope Materials or Materials Not Collected

Indigenous materials:

The Ethnic Studies bibliographer does not select materials on indgenous peoples in other countries, unless the work focuses primarily on the United States. Requests for these types of materials are usually selected by the Anthropology Librarian or other area studies selectors.

Juvenile materials:

Juvenile materials (meaning materials intended for a pre-school, elementary, middle school or junior high level audience) may be collected for inclusion in the Children's and Young Adult Collection. Secondary materials, such as bibliographies, finding tools, and original scholarly research on the topic of children's materials as relevant to Native American populations in the United States, may be collected in consultation with the Children's Literature Specialist.
