American Indian Library Association Home Page
AILA is an affiliate of the American Library Association (ALA). We plan to gradually add information about what we do as well as highlights from our Newsletter and links to other Native and minority library organizations.
Native American Authors
The Native American Authors website was created for the Internet Public Library by five graduate students in the University of Michigan's SI 726 class taught by the Director of the Internet Public Library, Joseph Janes. Within a three month period, Nicole Campbell, Karen Jania, Lorri Mon, Michelle Sampson and Yolisa Soul researched approximately 400 authors, 700 books and 200 URLs, and contacted nearly 100 Native American authors and other members of the Native American community for input and guidance in creating this Native Authors web resource.
Native American Journalists Association
NAJA serves and empowers Native communicators through programs and activities designed to enrich journalism and promote Native cultures.
