Just in time for classes to start, the library has acquired the Informit Indigenous Collection, a key resource for TRU’s Aboriginal Studies program.

The Informit Indigenous Collection covers both topical and historical issues within Indigenous studies. It contains over 15,700 full text records from 111 publications going back as far as 1977.

With material from Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, New Zealand, North America and The Pacific, the Informit Indigenous Collection is a platform for Indigenous worldviews. [Publisher’s Description]
