American Indian Boarding Schools Collection

Reflecting the history and heritage of the campus as an American Indian boarding school, Briggs Library organized and continues to maintain a collection of materials focusing on the off-reservation boarding school education model. The American Indian Boarding Schools Collection, located on the fourth floor of Briggs Library in the special collections area, includes materials on both church affiliated and federally funded schools. As is the case with other special collections housed on the fourth floor, these items are not available for check-out. Access to the collection is available whenever UMM Archives is open as well as by making a request at the reference desk.
