Target Audience: All librarians who work at institutions with collections on indigenous law of the Americas
1) Participants will be able to explain the structure and philosophy of the new indigenous law schedules.

Dr. Jolande Goldberg is working on the newest Library of Congress (LC) schedule, Law of the Indigenous Peoples of the Americas (Classes KIA-KIX), which is expected to be completed prior to July 2012. Throughout the schedule are links to primary sources in indigenous law. She will show how the indigenous law schedule can be utilized via ClassWeb, to support not just cataloging activities, but also collection development and reference services in exciting new ways. George Prager will then discuss his work at LC, reclassifying relevant parts of the collection into the new schedule.
