Date: Tuesday, July 17, 2007

Time: 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

Description of program: The information needs on indigenous government in the Americas challenges libraries and special repositories to develop, or make accessible, the records of indigenous American law. New inter-institutional collection development and digitization projects aimed at higher visibility of tribal law will be discussed. Also LC Classification Web was explored as an innovative simultaneous access tool for local and remote resources on tribal law and constitutional developments, while retaining its traditional functionality for cataloging.

The second part of the program is a live demonstration of LC Classweb and a pioneered Html version which will be upon completion posted on the LC CPSO web site.
