The Indigenous Studies Portal (iPortal) connects faculty, students, researchers and members of the community with electronic resources: books, articles, theses, documents, photographs, archival resources, maps, etc.
The vision of the Indigenous Studies Portal is to provide one place to look to find resources for Indigenous studies. This is a major undertaking and we have only just begun.
The Indigenous Studies Portal is an initiative of the University of Saskatchewan Library. As of July, 2009, the iPortal has more than 17,000 records, including the Our Legacy archival records recently harvested. This includes photos, anthropological field notes, diaries, correspondence and other textual documents.
The iPortal also links to Indigenous programs and events at the University of Saskatchewan. In addition, it offers specialized tools for teaching and scholarship.
