Dalhousie-Horrocks National Leadership Lecture & Award Presentation
Dr. Gene Anne Joseph (Hon.)
Reflections of a First Nations librarian from the 1970s to the present.
In this nearly fifty year period Dr. Gene Joseph (Hon.) has implemented a number of seminal approaches to library and archives services for First Nations communities. Her primary work has centred upon research and litigation support for Aboriginal Title and Rights. While advocating for establishment and improvement of library services to First Nations she has worked with many non-Indigenous librarians on a number of initiatives which have improved library services and increased the number of Indigenous librarians. As Gene says “A number of improvements, changes and then again not much movement on some very important areas of our profession.” There is still a lot of work needed!
