A Note on Terminology

Remember that terminology changes over time, and some disciplines reflect these changes more than others. When researching topics related to Indigenous studies you may need to use search terms that you find outdated and offensive, particularly if it is an historical topic. For instance, using the Library of Congress Subject Headings, a search for Inuit - Canada will find a different number of results compared to a search for Eskimos - Canada.
