I used dozens of Interviews of Hualapais in my first book. The DD collection is very impressive.
I may have missed it. Are the Native American oral histories available on-line?
Some are online here: http://utahindians.org/archives/
others have been digitized but aren’t online; those can be requested for remote research

Cassie, thank you for the resources you provided.
You are welcome!
We’ll ask Sam for the link.
Thanks so much, Molly and Cassie!
Interesting dynamics for this webinar.
Hi everyone- Unfortunately I need to step away from the webinar, because our 7 year old son needs some assistance with things. Thank you for a great webinar. I appreciate your work and contributions to this endeavor, and I look forward to our next meeting and webinar. Thank you! Take care!

The digital project/book to which I believe Gordon is referring to is Nicholas Bauch’s Enchanting the Desert: https://www.sup.org/books/title/?id=25726
Thanks a lot to all the panelists and organizers. Stay healthy y'all!

Very good point!!
Thanks so much for the insights and resources contributed by the panelists and the host for supporting research during the pandemic.
Kalenda, so, challenges for digital projects in general?
I answered in Q&A that things like other units doing digitization could be problematic, if there isn't enough staff.
Honestly, I suspect this is a time to strike. It’s a moment where accessibility, in so many senses, has become an incredible priority.
I think it will be hard to initiate projects now, for libraries, that may already have things in the queue.
But, the good part is that it's abundantly clear that we NEED to digitize as much as we can.
That’s going to bring the money, support, and team-building which is essential.
I think you're at OU, Kalenda. We have a digitization lab separate from the special collections.
They take on the big projects.
Anytime, Jacqueline - would be happy to hear from you!
