The UNM Center for Southwest Research (CSWR) collects, preserves, and makes available materials to help document the culture and history of the Diné in historical and contemporary times, from both native and non-native perspectives. Our unique archival holdings include manuscripts (personal papers, government and business records), oral histories, photographs, sound recordings, and architectural records. Our University Archives include records and a new oral history project to document Native Americans at UNM, including many Navajo students, faculty and staff. The CSWR also maintains many books, journals, videos, audios, newspapers & microfilm relevant to Navajo studies. We respectfully present this guide to the people of the Navajo Nation whose knowledge and voices are represented here. This guide was originally developed for use by the Navajo Studies Conference, 2006. Revised 2012.
