Digital Library North

This is a joint project between the University of Alberta School of Library and Information Studies and the Inuvialuit Cultural Resource Centre (ICRC). The project seeks to better understand the information needs and information seeking behaviours of the Inuvaluit people, as well as the extent and nature of the documentary hertiage of the Inuvialuit people. This information will be used to inform the development of a digital library service for the Inuvialuit Cutural Resource Centre.
