Talk:American Indian Archives and Libraries

Moved the following to laws and policies since it wasn't about libraries or archives:

Steven L. Johnson, Guide to American Indian Documents in the Congressional Serial Set: 1817-1899, Library of American Indian Affairs (New York, New York : Clearwater Publishing, c1977). WorldCat 865908163; FHL Book 970.1 J637g. The guide is mostly a chronological set of citations with a small index. Cites documents primarily about Indian relations with the United States government, that is, Indian affairs rather than descriptions of Indians or Indian life. The largest category is white claims for compensation because of Indian depredations.

Stripping the titles off website links[edit source]

Please do not strip the titles off of website links leaving only a bare URL. If a reader wished to see the bare URL with no hint of a title, all he or she would have to do is hover over the website name and the bare URL would appear in the lower left corner. Also, when a URL gets broken, it is easier to find the new URL if the person fixing the broken link can Google the name of the page. The Family History Research Wiki Manual of Style shows that bare URL links without a name are considered "incorrect."

Finally, ponder the examples of how website links are usually cited in Wikipedia.com to see how to do it in a classier way.

Thank you for your cooperation. DiltsGD (talk) 01:25, 17 May 2016 (UTC)
