Welcome to the website of the Tribal Libraries, Archives, and Museums (TLAM) Project.
In its fifth year at the University of Wisconsin – Madison School of Library and Information Studies (SLIS), TLAM is an experimental project to bring indigenous information topics to LIS education through service-learning, networking, and resource sharing with Wisconsin’s tribal cultural institutions. The TLAM Project currently encompasses a graduate topics course; the Convening Culture Keepers mini-conference series for Wisconsin tribal librarians, archivists, and museum curators; numerous community engagement projects with our partners; and a brand new TLAM Student Group.
Explore the site to learn about all of the great things we’re working on:
Convening Culture Keepers
A series of six one-day, biannual professional development and networking mini-conferences for Wisconsin’s tribal librarians, archivists, and museum curators.
Learn about the partnership projects between UW-Madison SLIS and American Indian communities in Wisconsin.
Since 2009, UW-Madison’s School of Library and Information Studies has offered an experimental service-learning based course called Tribal Libraries, Archives, and Museums.
TLAM Student Group
Inspired by the TLAM class and community engagement activities, SLIS students created this group as a way to continue participating in the TLAM Project outside of the classroom and share interests with the larger UW-Madison community.
