Bridging the Gap: The Need for First Nations Libraries…..



Article #10: Bridging the Gap: The Need for First Nations Libraries.

This article was found searching ebscohost again from the UBC Library. The article was originally published within the Canadian Library Association magazine in mid 2005. The article was well-written by First Nations Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, James Bartleman. The main theme of the article was describing the ‘gap’ in opportunities to access library materials for First Nations communities.

The author also talks of the importance of having access to libraries for younger First Nations students, and the importance of hosting activities of celebration such as First Nations Public Library Week.

It is interesting to read articles written in first person on real struggles of access to libraries for First Nations people.
