Vickerman, Kathrine D. (1996). The Voice of Our History, 1945-1995. This document presents the history of the first 50 years (1945-95) of the Mountain Plains Adult Education Association (MPAEA).

Following introductory materials, including the organization's first constitution, the document contains descriptions of MPAEA's activities in year 8 (1953) through year 50 (1995). Appendices contain a list of past presidents, a list of award recipients and emeriti, the current constitution, and descriptions of scholarships available through the organization.

Smith, Waldron P. (1970). The Attitudes and Beliefs of Teachers Concerning the Education of American Indian Children in the Southwest. American Indian Education Papers, No. 1. Interviews with 15 groups of teachers in Arizona and New Mexico, representing 10 schools serving predominantly Indian children on or near the periphery of Indian reservations, are summarized in this report. Major areas discussed are teacher attitudes toward methods of teaching Indian students and toward Indian control of schools, as well as teacher beliefs concerning characteristics of (1) Indian students, (2) Indian parents, and (3) teachers of Indian children. Major problems identified by teachers are the lack of competence in English among Indian students and the lack of parental interest in the schools. It is concluded that the education of American Indian children in the Southwest is rigid and inflexible, that classrooms are almost totally lacking in local materials, and that schools seem unwilling to make any concessions to enlist the enthusiasm or interest of the Indian community in the education of their children.

Dermody, Melinda Bako (1995). Local Area Network: What Can a Library Do with It?. With the ever growing interest that libraries have in the Internet, the potentials of other computer resources may be overlooked or under-utilized. One such resource is the campus local area network (LAN). For libraries, a campus LAN presents possibilities ranging from simple library promotion to networked databases. The Internet provides unlimited but sometimes unreliable resources; a local area network can provide controlled, relatively reliable and custom-tailored resources and services for a campus. New Mexico State University-Alamogordo Library attempts to make use of the campus LAN to enhance and expand upon traditional resources offered to users, and also to provide new and unique library services. This paper describes how the library makes use of the campus LAN in library instruction, library services, automation supplement, database access, and library promotion. Reproductions of computer screens are included which depict and list resources available on the Library Noticeboard.   [More]  Descriptors: Academic Libraries, Access to Information, Comparative Analysis, Computer Uses in Education

Cooper, James G. (1971). Perception of Self and Others as a Function of Ethnic Group Membership. The self-images of 407 Anglo American, 157 American Indian, 300 Mexican American, and 52 Negro rural high school students in New Mexico and Texas were compared in this study. Data from an 11-item semantic differential test were grouped in terms of 3 subsets: perceptions of self, feelings about school, and social variables. Although it had been expected that the study would reveal strong perceptions of self among the Anglo Americans and weak self-concepts among the ethnic minorities, the data revealed that each ethnic group saw itself in favorable light and saw the other groups less favorably. In the document, tables of means (by ethnic group) provide results of the bipolar-adjectives test. A list of participating schools is also included.   [More]  Descriptors: American Indians, Anglo Americans, Blacks, Community Influence
