Our Libraries

Within our Research & Collections building, the Institute for American Indian Studies has both an Education and a Research Library, containing over 2,000 books, journals and periodicals on subjects ranging from archaeology to art to contemporary Native American issues. These libraries are necessary in the creation of exhibits and for our staff to remain up-to-date on the latest information and archaeological discoveries.

With the heroic help of our volunteers, many of the libraries' materials have been added to the IAIS' LibraryThing profile and catalog. Conversion and organization of the library continues through these volunteers' efforts. To help, check out our volunteer page.

Our libraries are open by appointment to students, educators, researchers and members. To inquire about scheduling an appointment, call us at (860) 868-0518 ext. 107 or contact us by e-mail.
