This guide was created for students, faculty, administrative staff, and our community members.

2) E-Books on Indigenous Peoples

The Library has a number of collections on indigenous peoples. If you want to find ebooks on indigenous peoples in Canada, follow the steps below:

You have access to EBSCOhost's eBook Collection, eBook Canadian Collection, and eBook Academic Collection

Let's say you want to read books about indigenous peoples, focusing on Canada. In this case,

1) Go to one of the three collections, click Show all on the top, and choose the three eBook databases.

2) Enter "Indigenous peoples" OR "indian" and Canada in Subject Terms.

Note: Although the word "indian" is not appropriate to describe indigenous peoples and will be avoided as a subject term in the future, the word has not replaced with more appropriate term.

3) Narrow down your search by using Subject or Category on the left filtering options.
