Boozhoo! Hello!

Welcome to the website of the Tribal Libraries, Archives, and Museums (TLAM) Project.

The TLAM Project is an experimental effort at the University of Wisconsin – Madison School of Library and Information Studies (SLIS) to bring indigenous information topics to LIS education through service-learning, networking, and resource sharing with American Indian cultural institutions.

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.

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.
