Collaborative Planning Grant

The Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums (ATALM) and its partner, the Native Nations Institute at the University of Arizona, will use this planning grant to explore ways to improve digital inclusion practices in tribal communities. It emphasizes improving the ability of tribal library staff to provide high-quality, sustainable, and culturally relevant digital literacy programs using methods established from discussions with tribal libraries and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) representatives combined with survey data. ATALM will recruit a task force, collect information about digital programs from tribal communities and libraries, conduct focus groups, produce a report with action items, and form alliances with other digital literacy organizations.
