Try these basic strategies to begin your research in the UBC Library Catalogue:
1) Combine a Keyword for children's books with a search for Indigenous authors:
- "childrens books" AND "first nations author?"
TRY combining "first nations author?" with other keywords:
- "picture books"
- "juvenile fiction"
- "young adult"
- "juvenile literature"
2) TRY using Xwi7xwa's unique call numbers to help you search. Combine "first nations author?" with:
- "YUA" for ages 9 and under and picture books
- "YUB" for ages 9-13
- "YUC" for ages 13+ and YA
You can use these search strategies to find books to begin your research. There are many ways to make your search more effective.
TIP: Use a question mark to truncate a term to search words with the same stem.
Example: author? searches both author and authors
