California Indian Library Collections (CILC)

California Indian Library Collections

"The California Indian Library Collections (CILC) was funded with the aim of returning unique cultural materials to California's Native Americans and making the collections available to all citizens through their local libraries. Archived sound recordings, photographs, and textual materials (such as books, journal articles, unpublished manuscripts and field notes, many of which were gathered by Berkeley researchers in the early years of this century) have been duplicated and installed in twenty-one northern and central California libraries. Each county collection contains materials specific to the tribes within that county. A composite CILC set is also located in the California Room at the California State Library in Sacramento."
