I would like to acknowledge the helpful contributions to this research guide from a variety of people and libraries. UO Professors Brian Klopotek and Kirby Brown suggested many of the resources listed here. Further, librarians from the Xwi7xwa Library at University of British Columbia, NorQuest College Library in British Columbia, and the University Libraries at University of North Texas graciously shared their research and content from their library research guides. Thank you!
