Welcome to the Indigenous Popular Materials & Research Resources LibGuide!
Use the tabs to the left to navigate through this LibGuide. Each tab will deal with a separate resource for research.
Major topics include Literature, Music, Film & Television and Podcasts. Within Literature, you will find further breakdowns of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, children's literature and graphic novels. For research assistance, please see the Native American and Indigenous Studies research guide.
A user can find relevant articles with key search terms. A combination of the following will yield appropriate responses: “Native American” “Native” “Indigenous” “American Indian” or specific tribe names such as “Ojibwe” “Pequot” or others, and your research topic
In addition to using keywords listed in the box above, Boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT) will assist you with finding sources.
AND: will return results containing both words entered in the search (Native American AND literature)
OR: will return results with either search term used; can be helpful when searching for synonyms or related terms (Native OR Indigenous)
Quotation marks will search the exact term ("Native American literature")
Parenthesis will help improve a search by allowing for multiple search filters: (Native American OR Indigenous OR American Indian) AND Literature
Truncation will widen a search with a wildcard symbol (*), so any variation of the root will be gathered (Photo* will return Photograph, Photographer, Photography, Photosynthesis, etc.)
Features PDF content going back as far as 1865, with the majority of full text titles in native (searchable) PDF format. Searchable cited references are provided for 1,000 journals.
Members of the public can read online up to three articles for free every two weeks from a large subset of JSTOR journals via the Register & Read program. This program allows remote access. Non-UT students, faculty and staff who need more articles can contact library staff for other access options.
