Finding Curriculum Resources at UBC

 Search the UBC Catalogue using subject headings. For example:

Search the UBC Catalogue for keywords. For example:

  • "Residential school?" AND Juvenile

Search Tip: Use quotation marks to search for a phrase (e.g. "First Nations"). Use a question mark to truncate a term to search for words with the same stem (e.g. School? retrieves School, Schools, Schooling, etc.).  

Search the UBC Catalogue

TIP: If you limit your search to Location: X̱wi7x̱wa Library, you do not need to use keywords like "Indigenous" because our collection centres Indigenous scholarship and perspectives. You will retrieve fewer results, which means you may exclude some relevant materials, but it also means you will not have to sift through pages of results that have little to do with Indigeneity.
