Indigenous Course Requirement Collection

Archived since: Jun, 2023


Collection gathers news articles and websites that discuss Indigenous Course Requirements from Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, and Winnipeg. It focuses on the Indigneous Course Requirement that was established in 2015 at the University of Winnipeg. The largest group of sources are news articles. They discuss the need for Indigenous Course Requirements and how they can be a positive change in Universities. New articles also discuss the establishment of the Indigneous Course Requirement at the University of Winnipeg. These articles contain quotes from faculty, student leaders, students, and others that have a connection to the new requirement. The goal of this collection is to attempt to capture the thoughts of the time when the requirement was created in Winnipeg, and its place among the larger trend for Indigenous Course Requirements in Canada.

Library Digital Collections

Archived since: Jul, 2013


Library Digital Collections consists of digital resources pertaining to the University of Winnipeg Library, including the Urban Aboriginal Peoples Study, Western Canada Pictorial Index, and slide indexes from the departments of Media Services and UW Classics. The Urban Aboriginal Peoples Study is an extensive new research study that has gone beyond the numbers to capture the values, experiences and aspirations of Aboriginal peoples living in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Regina, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Thunder Bay, Toronto, Montreal, Halifax and Ottawa. The WCPI consists of reproductions of more than 70,000 images related to the history of Western Canada, gathered over nearly three decades. It began as a centennial project in 1970 under the direction of local journalist Eric Wells and Thora Cook. Wells and Cook appealed to archives, museums and the public to provide pictures of the province’s past for an exhibit which was displayed at the Central Canadian Exhibition, and then toured around schools and fairs in the province. When Wells and Cook needed a home for the Index, the University of Winnipeg offered space and some expertise, and the Index came to live here. In the early 1990s a decision was taken to move the project off campus, and the Index found a new home in the Exchange District under the direction of a new Board. In 2005, the University of Winnipeg agreed to move the Index back to campus under the management of the Library. The Index consists of slides and contact sheets and does not include any original negatives or prints. Collecting practices for images in the Index varied throughout its development, with the primary source of images being other archives, museums and historical societies. Another significant percentage of images came from families, companies and other forms of private donation.

Manitoba COVID-19 Outbreak

Archived since: May, 2020


The Manitoba COVID-19 Outbreak Collection created by the University of Winnipeg Library in collaboration with the University of Manitoba Libraries preserves and makes accessible archived web content related to Manitoba's response to the Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) global outbreak. This collection documents the socio-economic impacts of the pandemic on the province, which saw its first cases on March 12, 2020. Identification of relevant web content began in March 2020, shortly after the first cases were reported in Manitoba. Initial web crawling began in May 2020 and the collection is updated as needed throughout the duration of the pandemic. The content crawled by the University of Winnipeg Library includes websites related to galleries, libraries, archives, and museums (cultural institutions, also known as GLAM, with a mission to provide access to knowledge); health and wellness (medical centres, medical associations, and organizations related to wellness and the improvement of health); Indigenous organizations (all organizations owned by or relating to Indigenous Peoples in Manitoba); labour and unions (any organization, association, or business dealing with labour relations and unions); media and communications (outlets used to store and deliver information, including print media, news, and broadcasting); religious organizations (religious and faith-based organizations with mission of social value based on that faith); and social work and services (public services provided by the government, private, profit, and non-profit organizations). It should be noted that the University of Manitoba and University of Winnipeg websites are not included in the crawled websites as they are routinely crawled by the respective institutions. Also note that some institutions may be cross listed with groups crawled by either or both Universities. The University of Manitoba Libraries have further documented websites relating to agriculture; arts and culture; business, trades, and technology; education; emergency services; entertainment and recreation services, and government.

Wet’suwet’en Resources in Manitoba

Archived since: Feb, 2020


The Wet’suwet’en Resources in Manitoba collection was created in an effort to preserve the news, blogs, social media, and controversy as it relates to Manitoba surrounding the Coastal GasLink pipeline proposing to go through the Wet’suwet’en Nation's territory. The Coastal GasLink pipeline is part of a $40 billion project that would move natural gas extracted from northeastern B.C. to the proposed LNG Canada facility in Kitimat, B.C., where the gas would be liquefied and shipped overseas. A large portion of the proposed 670-kilometre pipeline is slated to go through the Wet'suwet'en Nation's traditional territory — a route rejected by most of the nation's hereditary chiefs. The pipeline's owner, TC Energy, says it has signed agreements with all First Nations along the proposed route, but the hereditary leaders say those agreements don't apply to their territory because they have never historically ceded their territory. The Wet’suwet’en Nation lies about 300 kilometres west of Prince George, B.C. Wet'suwet'en members and supporters established checkpoints and camps to prevent Coastal GasLink workers from accessing the Nation's territory. TransCanada got an interim injunction from B.C. Supreme Court in December 2018 for access, which was enforced by RCMP in January 2019, when 14 people were arrested at the Gidimt'en camp. Protests were organized nationally and internationally in support of the Wet’suwet’en Nation.
