Genealogical materials, including histories and general reference materials for public use, are among the accessions for the library. Special interests are history of the West, development of the Trans-Mississippi West, and Native American cultures. Its Western History Collection includes the WPA Indian-Pioneer Papers (see Manuscripts). The library maintains more than 1,500 collections pertaining to Oklahoma, Native Americans, and western frontier history. The Manuscripts Division houses over 5,000 maps of Indian Territory, Oklahoma Territory, and the Trans-Mississippi West. It also has more than 1,000 sound recordings, including the Doris Duke Indian Oral History Collection and other interviews with Oklahoma’s pioneers and leaders. Guides to the holdings are Donald L. Dewitt’s two publications: American Indian Resource Materials in the Western History Collections, University of Oklahoma (Norman, Okla.: University of Oklahoma Press, 1990); and Guide to Manuscript Collections: Western History Collections, University of Oklahoma (Norman, Okla.: University of Oklahoma Press, 1994).
