Welcome to the First Nations Interest Group (FNIG)!


The First Nations Interest Group (FNIG) of the British Columbia Library Association listens and responds to the information interests expressed by Aboriginal Peoples in British Columbia. We encourage the development of reciprocal relationships between Aboriginal communities and information organizations such as libraries and community resource centres.
