        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
        download.
