Librarians Talk DVDs

We did put together that request for a small grant to buy native-related DVDs for the library. We sent an email to the mailing list of the American Indian Library Association, asking for suggestions and for lists of what they have. The results were astonishing. In one day we heard from many different librarians, who sent us links to their online holdings, suggestions of titles, lists of places to order, and so on.

These movies are not all still available; they're not all affordable; and some sound so desperately disturbing no one will want to watch them. But it's wonderful to know so much is out there. We don't have the grant, of course; all we have so far is a theoretical shopping list. Do be sure to suggest any movies you think we ought to have, so we can build them in. Just in case we actually get to go shopping.

Among the lists, suggestions and websites we received from helpful Indian librarians all over North America:

PS Next week is National Library Week. But it's this week (and every week) that we are loving our librarian colleagues. :-)
