Indigenous Librarianship

"Indigenous librarianship unites the discipline of librarianship with Indigenous approaches to knowledge, theory, and research methodology." (From Indigenous Librarianship by Burns, Doyle, Joseph & Krebs, 2009). 

"It is my view that you need to look carefully at the way Aboriginal people are portrayed in libraries, and you need to reach out to Aboriginal people and show us that we are welcome to participate in an area which we were excluded from for a long time." (From Mick Dodson cited in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Library and Information Resources Network Protocols, 2012).
