Winter 2023: Brooklyn Law School (BLS) librarians and Library Fellows are developing this research guide to support the spring 2024 seminar: Native American Law. Tribal Law and Policy Specialist and Adjunct Professor of Law Precious Benally will teach this course. Professor Benally is a citizen of the Diné Nation from Northern New Mexico.
BLS students who want help identifying material to support their research can email: email@example.com or text: (718) 734-2432.
This guide primarily highlights 1) recent publicly accessible books and 2) recent books available through BLS Library. BLS is an independent law school and BLS Library's collection focuses on legal sources. Researchers could discover more legal sources by searching the catalog of National Indian Law Library (NILL) (click tab: Research to view new items) and by accessing the 15 topic-specific research guides developed by NILL. Those seeking a wider range of books could review reading suggestions made by staff of First Nations Development Institute, books honored in campaign: #NativeReads, and books highlighted by subject at Birchbark Books. New York state residents can apply online for a New York Public Library (NYPL) card to access ebooks, audiobooks, and additional databases (example: digitized archival sources in Gale database: Indigenous Peoples: North America). Those who live, work or attend school in New York state can apply online for a Brooklyn Public Library card.
