This sounds like an interesting opportunity that I expect might involve archives and visual materials…
With funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the Oklahoma Department of Libraries is sponsoring a 26-month course of study that will introduce selected participants to methods and strategies for designing research projects, identifying sources, accessing and using American Indian materials in local, regional, and national collections, and producing a short documentary using the information collected. A maximum of 20 research Fellows from across the nation will be selected through a competitive process. Stipend awards are available.
Application guidelines, forms, and a sample application may be downloaded from the front page of the Oklahoma Department of Libraries website at http://www.odl.state.ok.us/.
Applications are due by 5 pm CST on February 1, 2010.
Please let us know if you have questions or need additional help.
Best wishes for the happiest of holidays,
