Did you know that we offer an online guide just for students in the Transition Year Program (TYP)? The TYP is a one-year program designed for First Nations and African Canadian adults who do not yet meet standard Dalhousie entrance requirements. The TYP core curriculum includes non-credit courses in Black and Native Studies, Study Skills, English, Mathematics and a credit course at Dalhousie. An introductory Computer course is also offered.
The TYP Libguide includes information on using the library, doing research, and getting writing assistance. It also provides links to key databases and reference works and to books, theses, ebooks, videos and DVDs in Black and First Nations Studies. Of particular interest are the “Primary Sources” links to digitized documents such as letters, diaries, interviews and early historical accounts.
