Walking Together: An Investigation of Indigenous Students’ Relationship to the Academic Library
Libraries have begun to recognize their responsibility to Indigenous patrons and acknowledge gaps in knowledge, sensitivity, and cultural understanding. In response to the need for culturally responsive and relational library service, a team at the University of Toronto carried out a research project asking Indigenous undergraduate and graduate students to share their perceptions of the University of Toronto Libraries. Through this project, Indigenous students have shared their visions for an ideal library. Panelists will discuss the insights shared by Indigenous students and will reflect upon actionable steps academic libraries can take to develop programs to fill gaps in service to Indigenous students.
