Researching Indigenous business topics: New guide to save you time!

Published June 24, 2020 by Mark Bodnar

I'm very pleased to announce that SFU researchers now have a detailed research guide available on Indigenous business resources!

Our new guide is intended to save you time and effort on such projects.

The guide provides direct links to core resources such as association and government pages, specialized news sources, and much (much!) more.  

At the risk of confirming a librarian stereotype... I'd like to highlight the guide's section on ebooks and books.

Many researchers will skip books out of a mistaken belief that they can be dated or time consuming. In fact, we have many ebooks from the last few years on this topic -- we buy almost anything we can find on it. Moreover, a good book is a timesaver in that the expert author has gathered, evaluated, and organized information for you in one neat little package.

For this topic, relevant books can be particularly hard to find, so we've made an extra effort to identify and provide direct links to many useful items. With that many amazing titles, we decided to group them into categories (e.g., "Indigenous resource and economic development"). You'll need to open each category to uncover its treasures. See below for a treasure map screen capture.

If you have any resources to suggest for this new guide, please do let me know!

All the best,
