Whether you are an American Indian yourself or just want to learn more about the culture and people, the Tulsa City-County Library has a number of tools that you may find useful. The best place to start is with our American Indian Resource Center (or AIRC), which can be found in the Interests tab of the library’s home page, under the Topics list. The AIRC contains information on library programs pertaining to Native Americans, tribal languages, a collection of links to the official websites for many Oklahoma tribes, and more. We also have two useful databases, the American Indian Experience and the Bibliography of Native North Americans, accessible via the AIRC page or the Research Center’s database page. For a list of the remaining Festival of Words programming happening this month, go to the programs page mentioned above or check out our online event guide for March.
In addition to the programs and online resources, the AIRC has a large collection of physical materials in the form of books, audio CDs, and DVDs. This collection is kept at the Zarrow Library, and is available to the public. If you’d like to receive the AIRC monthly newsletter, you can sign up for it here.
