Keyword Searches in Discovery

(A note on terminology:  Academic libraries in Canada use the Library of Congress classification system.  This system of organizing knowledge is a product of colonialism and Library and Archives Canada and all Canadian libraries are currently engaged in reconciliation by working to decolonize classification and acknowledge other ways of knowing).

There are many terms used within libraries that refer to Indigenous Peoples.  If you are looking for information in Discovery you may need to use multiple terms, rather than one, separated by the word OR to access resources.  You can then add keywords to your search using AND. For example:

(indigenous OR "first nations" OR aboriginal OR indian* OR native*) AND water
