Celebrating and Supporting Research at Queen's
Queen’s University recently launched a new central website for Queen’s research. Including in-depth features, the latest information on the university’s researchers, and much more, the site is dedicated to showcasing the impact of Queen’s research.
One of the first feature stories on the website highlights the work of Lindsay Morcom, Canada Research Chair in Language Revitalization and Decolonizing Education. Since joining the Faculty of Education as an assistant professor in 2013, Dr. Morcom, who is also the coordinator of the Aboriginal Teacher Education program (ATEP), has focused her attention on the revitalization of Indigenous language and culture.
The Queen’s University Library, and the Education Library in particular, has supported Dr. Morcom’s work in various ways, specifically with respect to her affiliation with the Kingston Indigenous Languages Nest (KILN).
“Dr. Morcom’s nurturing support of the KILN has helped it to develop into a lively and thriving community learning circle,” says Brenda Reed, Head Education Librarian. “In recent months, the Education Library has worked with Dr. Morcom and members of the KILN to expand the library’s collection of Anishinaabemowin, Kanyen’kéha (Mohawk), and Cree materials for language learners, including board books, picture books, levelled readers, poetry, dictionaries, and more.”
