The Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums are requesting your help. If you have been involved in collaborative projects between tribal and non-tribal cultural heritage institutions, your help is needed with a study that is examining best practices for sharing useful skills, knowledge, and resources.
The study is led by a highly qualified research team made up of Elizabeth Joffrion, Director of Heritage Resources, Western Washington University and Natalia Fernández, Oregon Multicultural Librarian, Oregon State University. Both Elizabeth and Natalia have been long-time supporters of the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums (ATALM) and we can assure you that they will use the information you provide in a trustworthy and efficient manner.
To inform the study, a brief survey has been developed in consultation with members of the SAA Native American Archives Roundtable, the SAA Cultural Heritage Working Group, and ATALM. If you are currently involved in a collaborative project involving tribal and non-tribal organizations, or have been in the past, please complete a brief survey (5-10 minutes) to share your experiences.
