Alaska Library Network
Log Number: RE-250081-OLS-21
Alaska Library Network, in partnership with the American Indian Library Association, the Alaska State Library, and San José State University, will provide financial and scaffolded student support to 15 American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian graduate students to earn master's degrees in library and information science and an advanced certificate in strategic management of digital assets and services. The grant will support the recruitment, training, and development of these Indigenous librarians and contribute to growing a diverse and skilled professional workforce. Graduates of this project will bridge contemporary digital practices with traditional knowledge, while allowing for culturally appropriate stewardship of sensitive materials. This project will make supplemental curriculum, presentations, and poster sessions featuring scholarship widely available through the Sustainable Heritage Network.
