Books in the Library

A search on the Brandon University One Stop Search might look like this:

(sixties OR 60s OR 60) AND scoop

There will be results, including: Supporting Aboriginal Parents, and 2 versions of Native Children and the Child Welfare System (one online and one in print).

There are other books in the BU Library on this topic - a book may cover several topics and the Sixties Scoop may be one of them. Others may provide brief information on a particular aspect of the topic. Try checking the titles in the bibliographies of materials you do find for additional materials. To give you a head start, I have done some searching from other bibliographies - below you find SOME of the items in the BU Library that contain material on the Sixties Scoop. I encourage you to search bibliographies and other databases on your own.
