The University of New Mexico joined the Newberry Library Consortium in American Indian Studies (NCAIS) in 2010. Since that date, many of our faculty and students have been able to take advantage of the annual workshops, institutes, conferences, and fellowships available to graduate students and faculty at the member institutions as well as the Newberry Library’s world-renown collections in American Indian and indigenous studies as well as the resources of the D’Arcy McNickle Center. This page is designed to help you learn more about the opportunities you have through the consortium.
About the Newberry Library Consortium
In June 2008, the Newberry inaugurated a new Consortium in American Indian Studies. NCAIS began accepting members in the summer and launched the programs in July 2009. The NCAIS draws on the Newberry’s world-renowned collections in American Indian and indigenous studies.
The Newberry is a world-renowned independent research library in Chicago. The Newberry offers readers an extensive non-circulating collection of rare books, maps, music, manuscripts, and other printed material spanning six centuries. Its staff provides award-winning service and supports a rich array of programmatic opportunities.
