Interlibrary loan is a system that allows you to request material from other libraries to be sent to Trent for you to borrow. Normally, there are no costs to use the ILL service. Plan ahead because it can take a few days or even weeks for material to be sent, depending upon availability.
Use a keyword search to find items on a topic. For instance, to find books on the treatment of native children in residential schools in Canada you might search for canada and "residential schools".
It is important to be aware of terminology used in Indigenous Studies. Over time terminology used to describe indigenous populations has evolved. Thus, you may need to incorporate various terms in your searches. Search TOPCAT and try various keywords to see for yourself.

Sample subject headings for general topics:
