Overview: Native American Studies
Welcome to the Native American Studies class-guide! Considering that many people have not been exposed to the rich history of Native Americans since elementary school, this guide is to help people find information regarding Native Americans more efficiently. All the sources, which include, books, dissertations, films, manuscripts, maps, music, narratives, on-line resources, tribal and government documents, can be found at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center, Music Library and/or the Homer Babbidge Library, located on the UCONN-Storrs campus. Since many of the University Libraries on the Storrs campus are limited with information regarding Native Americans, please continue to search throughout the web and within the libraries located on UCONN's Avery Point, Waterbury, Torrington, Stamford and Greater Hartford campuses.
It is important to note that not all the sources within the UCONN libraries are found on this page. To find additional materials on these subjects, please continue to browse the Homer Library Catalog as well as search through the collection inventories and finding aids at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center's website. Also, scrolling over the "Home" tab, you will find two sub-pages that are useful in finding materials that are located within the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center. The third sub-page "Thomas J. Dodd Research Center" explains in detail what archives are and where they can be found. The fourth sub-page, "How to use a Finding Aid" explains how the search engine for the Dodd Center works.
To learn how to navigate this guide, as well as, learn how to access the information that is within this guide, please refer to the first and second sub-pages under this tab.
Important Information Regarding This Class-Guide
Not all Native American tribes and information relating to the history of Native Americans are discussed on this Lib-Guide. Many tribes and events have little or no information within the UCONN libraries. Therefore, this page is not a complete index of Native American history.
