Native American titles added to the NLS collection
In fiscal year 2009 NLS added twenty-four titles to its Native American
collection, which includes folklore, history, mythology, fiction, and
works by Native American authors. This annual listing of titles is a
finding aid for network librarians. All books are available in the formats
noted below and will be announced in __Braille Book Review or Talking
Book Topics__. The titles in braille will also be available to registered
users through Web-Braille. Assigned book numbers are given with the
title if available at the time of listing. Please note that some of the titles
on the list are still in process. Also note that digital books (DB) are now
being offered. A title that is available as both a digital book (DB) and a
recorded cassette (RC) has the same book number for both formats and
uses the prefix DB/RC. Some digital titles may be available only for
