Indigenous Programs at Laurentian
Native Studies was first established as an undergraduate program by the University of Sudbury and was recently renamed Indigenous Studies. It publishes the Undergraduate Journal of Indigenous Studies : Dbaajmowin.
At Laurentian itself, the School of Native Human Services, which offered an undergraduate degree in social work, was renamed The School of Indigenous Relations. This School has two programs: The Honours Bachelor of Indigenous Social Work program and the Master of Indigenous Relations program. The School is a proud sponsor of the Indigenous Social Work Journal previously called the Native Social Work Journal.
Courses are also taught from an Indigenous perspective in such disciplines as Architecture, Education, English, Nursing, and Sociology.
The purpose of this guide is to recommend print and electronic resources for conducting research in Indigenous Studies in the libraries on Laurentian University's campus. Click on the tabs on the left for suggestions about starting your research, getting books and articles, and finding other useful tools for research in Indigenous Studies.
To learn more about the library and its resources and how you can exploit them to your advantage, register in the Research Skills Tutorial on D2L. There are several sections in the tutorial with a short quiz at the end of each; at the end you will receive a Certificate of Completion. Many professors require you to take this tutorial--and once you finish it, you can save your certificate to reprint as often as necessary.
In the fall, the library hosts live Orientation tours as well as Zotero classes which you can sign up for at the library's entrance, and even after the formal schedule is finished, we are very happy to put on special classes at the request of at least 5 students. If you would like to arrange a special class, or you think your course would benefit from some in-class library instruction, please ask your professor to contact the librarian responsible for your faculty to set up some sessions.
