Note: Language used to organize material relating to Indigenous Peoples in the Library of Congress cataloguing system (the one used in our catalogue) is frequently historical and outdated compared to current usage. Older items may be catalogued under terms like "Indians" or "Micmac", for example, while newer items are catalogued under "indigenous" and "Mi'kmaq". While efforts are ongoing to update the terminology the catalogue uses, you will probably need to search using a variety of terminology to make sure you aren't missing important items.

You can find both e-books and print books via searching the Novanet catalogue. All of our e-books are listed in the catalogue. You can also search for e-books directly in one of our e-book databases. There are several options for accessing and downloading e-books. As a SMU student, staff, or faculty member, you have complete access to e-books on and off campus.
