The Delaware Nation Library in Anadarko, Oklahoma will update its current collection with additional research materials, including books and online resources. Staff will fully assess and create an index for the archives collection within the library, which is largely unusable in its current form. In an area where the Native American tribes are primarily southwest or plains people, the east coast facet of the Delaware/Lenape culture is unique, and the library collections serve as historical and educational resources for tribal members as well as the surrounding community. To enhance skills, staff will participate in educational opportunities, including the annual conference of the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums.
