About ASU Library Labriola Center
The Labriola National American Indian Data Center's primary purpose is to support scholarship and instruction on Indigenous knowledge across all disciplines at ASU. Since its inception in 1993, the Labriola Center has become a pivotal service for the ASU Indigenous community. Its collection supports the ASU American Indian Studies department and the Center for Indian Education, as well as faculty and students teaching and learning from an Indigenous perspective across all disciplines. The Labriola Center frequently partners with various ASU programs such as American Indian Student Support Services, the Office of the President on American Indian Initiatives, and Indigenous student groups. The Labriola Center also reaches out to the greater Phoenix Indigenous community to provide research support, host special events and exhibits, and provide community-driven archives services. The center now resides on two campuses, Tempe and West, and delivers virtual library services. You can learn more about the Labriola Center at https://lib.asu.edu/labriola.
