NEW Book Display: NAHM

Celebrate Native American Heritage Month with us

NAHM2In honor of Native American Heritage Month, Smith Library Center has a new display of books on a range of topics by and about Native Americans.

History, politics, education, and religion are showcased along with pictorial works, collections of Native poetry and art, and fiction by Native authors. Twelve feature films and documentaries, as well as award-winning children’s literature selections are also included. 

“It was difficult to narrow down what to display,” said Librarian Theresa Zelasko, “as the library’s collections contain numerous works on and by Native Americans and the tribes and topics they represent.”

If anyone is interested in finding more books or other items not in the display, please contact the InfoDesk to set up an appointment with a librarian. Special Collections also owns many rare and historical items by and about Native Americans, especially as related to Texas history.

A curated selection of 57 books and DVDs have been placed on display in the library’s Periodicals Reading Room. We encourage you to browse and enjoy! All items can be borrowed. These items will be displayed through the end of the semester.
