Developing the Next Generation of Native Librarians
School of Information, University of Texas at Austin

Honoring Generations students, October 2006

Honoring Generations, an IMLS supported scholarship, supports American Indian students interested in careers in tribal librarianship. Scholarships have been available for six students to enroll in a 40 graduate credit hour in-residence program at the University of Texas at Austin in the School of Information.

Honoring Generations focuses on four priorities:

  1. recruitment
  2. professional education
  3. mentoring
  4. service-learning

Students will complete, within three calendar years, the forty semester hours required for a Master of Science in Information Studies from the School of Information (SI) at the University of Texas at Austin. These 40 semester hours will include nineteen hours in required courses and twenty-one credit hours in elective courses. Students may choose to organize their coursework around one of three themes:

  1. tribal school librarianship
  2. tribal community (public) librarianship
  3. tribal academic librarianship
