culture. The park library collection consists of approximately 3000 items including books, theses, dissertations, reports,
periodicals and reprints. The catalog for the NPS library collection is available online at http://www.library.nps.gov

The Sustainable Heritage Network
The Sustainable Heritage Network is a collaborative platform that provides hands on and virtual training in the digital lifecycle
of cultural materials. Aimed specifically at the needs of tribal archivists, librarians, and museum specialists, the SHN makes
information and educational resources accessible for the preservation of digital cultural heritage and traditional knowledge.
Within the network, institutions and communities work together to provide each other with digital tools and preservation
assistance. We call this Collaborative Stewardship.
The Tribal Stewardship Cohort Program
The TSCP is focused on providing educational opportunities for tribal archivists, librarians and museum professionals in
hands-on and virtual trainings provided using a small cohort model to stress practical skills and replicable processes. Our goal
is to promote understanding of the entire digital lifecycle, from physical object, to digitization, with a focus on providing
community access to collections. The program is funded by a three-year grant from the Institute of Museum and Library
