Preparing for the Journey: Walking the Path Towards Truth and Reconciliation Presented by Jamie Lee Morin (York University Libraries), Melanie Ribau (Toronto Public Library), Desmond Wong (University of Toronto Libraries)

Desmond Wong, Outreach Librarian University of Toronto Libraries Call to Action no. 57

We call upon federal, provincial, territorial, and municipal governments to provide education to public servants on the history of Aboriginal peoples, including the history and legacy of residential schools, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Treaties and Aboriginal rights, Indigenous law, and AboriginalCrown relations. This will require skills-based training in intercultural competency, conflict resolution, human rights, and anti-racism

York University Library Community perspective There is absolute and incredible value in creating and maintaining partnerships between your institutions and Indigenous communities in your area (and beyond). If you are interested in learning more but are unsure how, simply begin.

Examine how your institutions may be inaccessible to Indigenous communities, and work on increasing accessibility and visibility. Recommendation: to read and actively explore the full implementation of the Canadian Federation of Library Associations Truth and Reconciliation Committee Report and Recommendations. Examples of Outreach and Collaborations

1. The Creation of the Aboriginal Research Portal and the Four Directions Writing Guide, Ryerson University Library and Archives (RULA) 2. My current work as an Indigenous Digital Collections Project Assistant (with many thanks to Young Canada Works), York Universitys Scott Library Both opportunities are In accordance is the CFLA TRC recommendation

#9: to establish living documents to highlight existing Best Practices of Indigenous Services in libraries, archives, and cultural memory institutions This among others has lead me to the hope of becoming an Indigenous To conclude Create and maintain meaningful relationships with Indigenous

communities. This can be done through reaching out to communities, Indigenizing knowledge keeping and sharing spaces and practices,, and through recruiting and keeping Indigenous candidates for the job. Zotero Together we have prepared a group library on Zotero to share some

resources that may be of interest. You may view it at: Contact Us Jamie Lee Morin @jme_morin Melanie Ribau
